OData Standards Support

The OData (Open Data) Standards Support documentation contains detailed technical documents for certain standards that are implemented in specific Microsoft implementations.

Note The inter-document links in a PDF version of a technical document are functional only if all the cross-referenced documents are saved to the same local directory folder. An error message appears if you click a link that references a PDF document that is not located in the same folder (when viewing via your local hard drive) or is part of a different download (when viewing online). To save a complete set of PDF files to the same folder, download the OData Standards Support .zip file. This is a large file and can take a few minutes to download.

Preview Versions

From time to time, Microsoft may publish a preview, or pre-release, version of an Open Specifications technical document for community review and feedback. To provide feedback for a preview version of a technical document, please follow the instructions for that document, if provided. Otherwise, you can provide feedback by using the Open Specification Forums.

The preview period for a technical document varies. Additionally, not every technical document will be published for preview.

After the preview period, the technical document is published to the appropriate location in the Open Specifications MSDN Library.
