68th WM Release

On June 25, 2012 the 68. WM Release will become effective. We would like to inform you about some upcoming alterations beforehand and corresponding impacts in WMACCESS.

New fields in the query profile Securities master data (G)

  • GD189F Underlying index multiplier identifier
  • GD189G Underlying index multiplier
  • GD447H Limited recourse identifier
  • GV939 Euro Bond issuers

Frozen fields

The following data fields will be frozen as of the 68th WM Release.

Query profile Investment Fund Characteristics (IFK):

  • GD971A Fund granularity
  • GD971B Date re. granularity

These two fields are frozen by WM Datenservice without replacement. For existing securities, therefore, these fields are not any more updated and not provided for new issues. The display with the last valid values ​​is still available till the next WM Release on October, 22. Until then these fields will be presented as frozen.

Query profile Stock exchanges & trading practices (X):

  • XD170 Flat quotation identifier
  • XD543C Maximum spread %
  • XD543G Threshold
  • XD543H Maximum spread below the threshold
  • XD543I Maximum spread

With the 68th WM Release the field XD170 is replaced immediately by the existing field XD171 and therefore removed from the query profile Stock exchanges & trading practices (X).
The fields XD543C, XD543G, XD543H & XD543I were designed to provide data for Xetra and EUWAX. The Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the Stuttgart Stock Exchange, however, now abolished the maximum spread requirement on these plattforms. Therefore, the fields are frozen by WM and removed from the query profile X without replacement analogous to the two above mentioned IFK fields by 22.10.2012.

Detail level of the table attributes in wmView

To date the detail display for key values such as "DE" only contains the up to 24-characters form text under information content. Besides standardised values such as the country code according to ISO standard 3166 often table attributes occur that cannot be interpreted immediately and unequivocally by everyone with the 24 available characters.

Current presentation of the table attributes:

24-characters form text under information - standard detail level for wmView table attributes

24-characters form text under information content for the value "K" in the WM field GD504A


With the menu item administration we have now created a possibility to change this standard setting for the current WMACCESS session.

The administration can be opened comfortably by using the WMACCESS menu:

WMACCESS menu

A click on the fourth tool bar button from the right opens the WMACCESS menu.

Selecting option 'administration'

Click on the option 'administration' and it will open in a new window.


Changes to the detail level in the WMACCESS administration:

Options for the detail level of the table attributes in wmView

Detail level of the table attributes in wmView and wmProfile

The four available options are described in the following:

Option Description
1 For single attributes the up to 24-characters form text is displayed – this corresponds to the standard setting. This is the setting of each beginning of a new WMACCESS session.
2 For single attributes the long, detailed continuous text is displayed instead of the form text.
3 Analogous to option 1; additionally, the detailed continuous text is displayed in the tooltip of the linkage fields.
4 The most comprehensive presentation encompasses the display of the detailed continuous text for table attributes for single attributes as well as in the tooltip of the linkage fields.

Make your choice in the administration screen and implement this setting with a click on the "OK" button. The selected setting will be used immediately for the next wmView query and is only valid for the current session.

Presentation of single fields at highest detail level:

Highest detail level for single fields – display of the detailed continuous text

Highest detail level for single fields – display of the detailed continuous text


In the detail levels 3 and 4 the detailed continuous text is also displayed in the tooltip of the linkage fields.

Tooltip linkage fields at highest detail level:

Highest detail level for linkage fields – display of the continuous text in the tooltip.

Highest detail level for linkage fields – display of the continuous text in the tooltip. Here for interest calculation method 10 (ISDA rule).

Another small improvement was made ​​in the detail display of wmView.

Long name as tooltip in wmView detail display

The long name of the WM fields is now available in a Tooltip in wmView and wmProfile. We consider this small enhancement very useful because the displayed abbreviated short name of many fields are sometimes difficult to interprete.

Fields with enabled field history:

Tooltip with reference to field history including field ident and its long name

Tooltip with reference to field history including field ident and its long name

The tooltip is displayed when the user hovers the cursor over the displayed short name.

Representation for fields without a field history:

Tooltip with long name for WM linkage field EV407

Tooltip with long name for WM linkage field EV407
