2.1.5 Collection of Records

Office

A collection of records (section 2.1.4) is a series of related records that are treated as a single set. Records in a collection do not have to share the same record type. A collection of records can further contain other collections of records. The beginning of a collection of records is sometimes indicated by a different type of record, as specified in the record sequence ABNF where the rule that contains that record is specified. Similarly the end of a collection of records is sometimes indicated by a different type of record, as specified by the record sequence ABNF where the rule that contains that record is specified. Each record or collection within the collection can be referred to by index, and the index count starts over for each collection.

In this document, record A precedes record B when record A is the last record of that type to appear before record B, in the stream (section 2.1.2) or substream (section 2.1.3) that contains those records.

In this document, record B follows record A when record A is the last record of that type to appear before record B, in the stream or substream that contains those records.
