What is the value for 'MailClass'?

In xml Invoice Standard v2.1, the values for 'MailClass' are

T - Empty receptacles

U  - Letters (LC/AO)

C - Parcels (CP)

E - EMS

J - Reserved (NOT to be used)

 
But the validation for this field is 'Should be one of the following values--------Letter-post/ CP Bags/ Sacks of empty bags'
 
Which is correct?

Can you please tell me exactly where the 'Validation' field in question is located (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.

Thanks for your announcement of ISPG V2.1. However, xml v2.2 still has the same problem. There are several columns in Invoice Standard Sheet. Column O is 'Values' and Column S is 'Validation'. In theory, the content of these two columns for a specific element shall be consistent. But for MailClass and MailCategory, they are not.
Could you please check again.

You're right. I was searching on an incorrect sheet, where validation and values are consistent for MailClass (or at least not contradictory). 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.
 
Thanks.

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