ArcCatalog export to FGDC CSDGM (FAQ) lacks Larger Work Citation

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Metadata containing Larger_Work_Citation information viewed with the FGDC stylesheet, exports to FGDC CSDGM format without the additional information in the section "This is part of the following larger work."


This is a limitation of the version of arcexe80\bin\mp.exe used.

Solution or Workaround

  1. Rename arcexe80\bin\mp.exe to old_mp.exe.
  2. Download the most recent version of mp.exe from the USGS web link at the bottom of this page.
  3. Copy the newer mp.exe to arcexe80\bin.
