Working with Common Information Repositories

S1000D has provided the facility to have a series of common files containing information which can be referenced from standard Data Modules and defines the process which is to be used to display this information in the local Data Module.

The Eclipse S1000D application provides the interfaces necessary to enable users to utilise these features. The following short videos demonstrate how these features can be used.

1. Insertion of a Warning from a Warnings and Cautions repository

The Warnings and Cautions repository comprises a normal Descriptive Data Module which has been given an Information Code of 012 and a deviation code of A.
