Abstract

Disclosed is a method to view the staple attachments by a particular document. The staple relationship logically ties two otherwise discrete, independently defined documents together. This relationship is a one-to-one relation where the attaching document can be referred to as the "stapler" and the receiving document can be referred to as the "staplee". A particular "stapler" document may be stapled to many other "staplee" documents at the same time. Authorized users may need to see which "staplee" documents are stapled by a particular "stapler" document.
