An improved version of the GCE data submission spreadsheet template is now available that provides more help filling out column data type information on the Tabular Data worksheet. Detailed descriptions of options for each field are listed in the cell comments for the corresponding row heading, and drop-down menus are provided for filling in Data Type, Variable Type and Number Type metadata to prevent typographic errors. As always, please contact the GCE IM Office if you have any problems using the template or need specific guidance on how to fill out the requested information.
