Please take note of the following changes
The file will be named docdb_xml_200818_re-key_at.zip and should be processed after the regular DOCDB delivery of week 18/2008
This update has also been written to clarify and explain some more details on the types of documents that will be affected
Documents affected by this re-key exercise will not only be limited to AT-A publications as there are a small number of AT-B documents that may be affected as well
This re-key exercise does not mean that application kind-codes 'D' will never appear in the exchange again.
"Dummy" application kind-code 'D' may still be used incidentally for AT and for other countries to temporarily solve minor problems
The kind-code may contain non-standard values like 'D', 'K', 'L', 'M', 'N' and 'Q'.
These are used to temporarily resolve minor problems that would otherwise have blocked the update. This technique serves the purpose of getting the bibliographic data stored in the database as quickly as possible without the update being delayed by minor issues that can be resolved after the fact
Please take note of the difference between the numbers that have the suffix code 'D' and the applications which have the kind code 'D'. Please see example below:
AP - AT362D 0 ---> in DOCDB this is : AT 362D A, number suffixed with letter 'D', the application kind-code is 'A'
This is not an application with kind-code 'D', these applications will not be included.
These applications are applications that have their numbers suffixed by 'D'
FOR THE ATTENTION OF SUBSCRIBERS TO THE IFD DATABASE
In the past, in the IFD exchange, application kind-codes 'D' were converted into kind-code 'A', on the fly at the time of the exchanges.
The AT publications included in this re-key exercise are a closed range, with the last publication in the range published before DOCDB/XML went live.
Subscribers to the former IFD database who have not used the DOCDB backfiles (2006/39 or 2008/12) for a reload may find therefore, only very few AT-D applications in their databases.
