Subject: UBL International Data Dictionary 2.1 working spreadsheets are mounted

Fellow UBL TC members,

Please find the four UBL International Data Dictionary 2.1 working spreadsheets mounted here:


Note that the German (DE) spreadsheet was only ever in a draft state and not finalized. I believe I have properly transcribed the other three languages, Spanish (ES), Italian (IT) and Japanese (JP), which were all voted on and approved for UBL 2.0.

Voting members who wish to contribute to these spreadsheets must give me (off list) their email address associated with their Google Drive accounts. I will then give those voting members edit access to columns G and H.

When column I is empty, then the UBL 2.1 definition for that BIE is either non-existent in UBL 2.0 or identical to UBL 2.0. When non-empty, it is the old UBL 2.0 definition before it was changed in UBL 2.1.

We need to review these sheets for any necessary technical changes before we start populating content. Thankfully, the spreadsheet is quite simple behind the scenes, so I'm not expecting to have to make any technical changes. Once people start making changes I cannot refresh the spreadsheets or their work will be lost.

Note that I am aware that Google Drive is corrupting the thick border to the right of column H of BBIE rows. In my master ODS file the thick border appears. After uploading the thick border disappears. This has been the least of the problems as I've had to make other changes to get around Google Drive bugs that are triggered on the BBIE rows.

Please post to the TC list your suggestions or bug reports ASAP. Next week I will post to the UBL Dev list the protocol of accepting input from non-members only through the UBL TC comment list.

Finally, note that these are collaborative spreadsheets and anyone can work on any of the sheets at the same time.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you find any problems. And please take the time in the next few days to review these so that we can earnestly start the editing process next week. As you are doing your tests, please keep record of what you are doing so that I can regenerate the starter spreadsheets next week before making them public.
