Disclosed is a method to unstaple one or more documents from a document in a library. 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 "stapler" may be attached to a set of "staplees". A "staplee" may be attached by a set of "staplers". A user may wish to removed one or more "staplers" from a particular "staplee".
