All the supplied QML row sheets in the example Spreadsheet Tool were updated to employ the new pick list for the comparator operators. Most Framework supplied Survey Codes integrated to the Description Key Sets and supplied Survey Figure Prefix Dbs are included in the example sheets and/or Survey Query Library QML files.
