25/11/08: Data Definitions for Previous Years
The location of the data definitions in the Data Dictionary for previous years has changed, as the server directory has been decommissioned by E-Comms. For users accessing this information via the Data Dictionary, there will appear to be no change. However, if users had links or bookmarks to individual definitions, these will need to be updated. An index of the relevant files
is available for convenience.
