Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2783) 7.4 Variable Fields,7.4.1 General - The OpenDocument elements for declaring variables aredescribed in sections 7.4.3, 7.4.8 and 7.4.12.

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2783?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=20247#action_20247 ] 

Michael Stahl  commented on OFFICE-2783:

the elements that _declare_ variables are indeed the <*-decl> elements that are enumerated in the sentence you quote.

<text:variable-set> does not declare a variable; it sets the variable to a new value.
i think <text:expression> does not even set a variable, though it may read variables.

immediately preceding the sentence you quote there is:
"Variables shall be declared before they can be used."

so a <text:variable-set text:name="foo"> without a preceding <text:variable-decl text:name="foo"> would be invalid.

of course the sentence that you propose to delete can be figured out from the schema,
so i don't have a strong opinion against deleting it, but i don't see a good reason to delete it either.

> True but then what do we call 7.4.4 <text:variable-set>? Or 7.4.14 <text:expression>? Are we keying off "-decl" in the name? If so, let's lose this sentence.
