AFAIK, the variable is used to construct a set of possible targets: you select the items to refile and then you select *one* item from this set. There is completion: as you type, the set is cut down to whatever subset matches your current input - org does not let you finish until the refiling target has been specified uniquely. Each element of the org-refile-targets list generates a set of posssible targets. The whole set is the union of these partial sets. Since ORs map to unions and ANDs to intersections, I guess one could say that they are ORed together, but personally I find it confusing to think of it in these terms. Assuming that this is correct, does it help? And if it is correct and it does help, what would you change in the docs to incorporate this information? And how? Nick
