Hello!

I downloaded ETIM 7.0 XML from the website and saw the "changecode" column. It would be great to know for each deleted class, what class is the successor. We can see this online in the CMT tool, but is it possible to have this information in a database?

Thanks,

Roberto

Hi Roberto,

With "Multiple successor classes (1 to many)" the number of possible successor classes is too much to display, so you just have to use the right synonyms to identify the successor. For the rest the remarks mean there is no successor for various reasons. 

For the mapping files with groups, features, values etc., these are only available for ETIM members. If your company is an ETIM member in one of the member countries, please contact your local ETIM office. But as you mentioned in the beginning of this topic, if you use the IXF (XML) release format, the change codes are included.

Hi Roberto,

Please see attached Excel file for mapping of all classes deleted with ETIM 7.0

Hello Marc,

Thanks very much for this information. I have been reviewing the excel and have a couple of questions regarding the column "ARTCLASSREMARK":

1. What is the difference between "Successor = EC010859, EC010069, EC011477, EC011556 " and "Multiple successor classes (1 to many) "?

2. Do all the following remarks mean that the classes have been deleted with no successor?

"No successor "

"No successor - product does not exist any more "

"No specific successor "

Thanks very much for your help!

Hello again Marc,

It would also be great to have the excel file for differences in groups, features, values and units, sorry for not asking for it at the same time!

Thanks,

Roberto

Hello again,

While there are 386 deleted classes in the Mapping Excel spreadsheet you attached, when I analyze the "Deleted" classes on the ETIM 7.0 ALL SECTORS XML, the number of deleted classes are 203. Why is there this difference?

Thanks,

Roberto

Hello Roberto,

Perhaps it's good to know that in Holland we developped a tool called ETIM UP. This tool supports all manufacteres in migrating from ETIM publication to a new ETIM publication. It is based on mappingrules, At this time it's just for the Dutch market, but usable for all the ETIM-using countries. Because the tool is just new, we'll be starting in Holland with the use of this tool. I'm already consulting my board under wich conditions the other ETIM-countries can/may use this promising tool. 

Regards, Arnold Kampstra (ETIM Netherlands)

Hello Arnold,

Thanks very much for the information about ETIM UP, please let me know when you have more information about the usage of ETIM UP outside the Netherlands.

@marchabets​, I had a question regarding the real number of deleted classes in ETIM 7.0, as there are 386 deleted classes in the Mapping Excel spreadsheet you attached, but when I analyze the "Deleted" classes on the ETIM 7.0 ALL SECTORS XML, the number of deleted classes are 203. Why is there this difference?

Thanks a lot,

Roberto

That has to do with the fact that I don't have a good reference for ALL SECTORS status ETIM 6, again due to this overlapping (OKW) classes I explained before. ETIM 6 was only published in NL for all sectors but then leaving out the double overlapping classes. So if I compare ETIM 7.0 now with this NL release for all sectors, the deleted overlapping classes don't show as deleted, because they were not part of this NL release. Quickly forget about it, thank god the last time we had this confusion ?
