Can you please tell me exactly where the 'Validation' field in question is location (file, sheet, cell)? I can't find it.
Also, please note that the current xml invoice standard is v2.2. That may be the problem.

I was able to confirm that this problem exists in xml 2.2.
I've opened ticket #115 and we'll update this discussion when a relevant decision is reached.

The validation text is being removed, so the correct values are those found in the "Values" field.
