Attempting to understand the MSD Samples
« on: January 26, 2010, 05:57:20 AM »

In attempting to understand how MSD's and Metadata Reports work, I was looking over the documentation and sample files provided in the SDMX 2.0 release.

According to the Schema and Documentation document (3A), in section 6.6.4:
Quote
4880 A complex type will be declared with the name “MetadataSetType”, and it will contain
4881 a complexContent element. Inside of this will be an extension element with a base
4882 attribute value of “metadatareport:MetadataSetType”. Inside of this will be a
4883 sequence element. For each ReportStructure element in the
4884 MetadataStructureDefinition, there will be an element declared which has the name
4885 of the id attribute of each report structure.

The sample MSD file, ContactMDStructureSample.xml contains four ReportStructure elements: PRIMARY_CONTACT_REPORT_COMPONENT, PRIMARY_CONTACT_REPORT_CATEGORY, CONTACT_REPORT_COMPONENT, and CONTACT_REPORT_CATEGORY.

The sample schema "IMF_CONTACT_MetadataReport.xsd only contains two elements in the MetadataSetType, however, PRIMARY_CONTACT_INFO and CONTACT_INFO.

So, do these two files not match up, or am I missing something?

Thanks,
