Subject: RE: [ubl] Re: Final Draft UBL 2.0 Schemas


In addition to the qDT spreadsheet that needs to be corrected, the following
spreadsheets are missing from the draft package posted 12/10.

1) Common library spreadsheet
2) Procurement library spreadsheet 

The absence of these spreadsheets will create additional defects in the

Because Betty only compared her schema files with Peter's, and, they both
used the same spreadsheets, these issues were not identified.

IMO, we cannot send out the schema for public review until they contain the
Common and Procurement, and Transport libraries. I requested the missing
spreadsheets off-line yesterday and am waiting to receive them.

p.s. Who will do a QA of the spreadsheets to the schema? As we can see from
this email, simply doing a diff of the schema does not provide enough
feedback about the quality of the schema, and no feedback about the
spreadsheets which are used as input to create those schema.

I'm taking the message below to mean:

 - Yes, there should be enumerated values for hardwired UBL code
   lists in the file UBL-SpecializedDatatypes-2.xsd.

 - The enumerations aren't there because the spreadsheet for
   UBL-SpecializedDatatypes-2.xsd doesn't contain the appropriate
   file names.

I'm further assuming that the schemas are (at this point) known to be
defective only in that they will not trap bad values for the hardwired code
lists using xsd validation.

If any of this is incorrect, please tell me.

If this is correct, then unless someone can fix the problem and have the
revised schemas to me by the end of the day today (Friday
23 December), I propose to use the schemas as they are now and explain this
as a known issue in the release notes.

   I found the problems.  One is with the qDT spreadsheet. EDIFIX creates a
   Note entry based on the filename in Column S with this filename and uses
   for the export process.

   The names are either missing, inconsistent, or have extensions like .doc
   preceded by a URL.  

   The first value in Column S must contain "= filename.txt" without the

   The master spreadsheets need to be corrected and resubmitted.

   The second problem is with one of the EDIFIX configuration files. Betty,
   will send you a fix for this.

   I am attaching a older spreadsheet that included the correct code list
   filenames. This file should only be used for information purposes and not
