World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates Report (WASDE)

August 12, 2015, WASDE: Note to users of the WASDE XML & Excel formats

Beginning with the August 12 World Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report, the XML and Excel versions will be modified due to a software upgrade. 

The XML version will eliminate “FormatFiller” tags which will cause a change in the path to the individual data points on the following pages:  24, 28, 29, 30, 35, 36, and 37.

The Excel format output that was released in July eliminated blank columns on all pages, and will continue to be released in this format without further changes. This change impacts all table pages.
