In the SDTM TV dataset, the variable ARMCD exists but no ARM variable exists.  The ARM variable in the study define.xml file has been listed as a key.  However, when the OpenCDISC Validator executes using both SDTM + define.xml, no errors are fired to indicate this problem.  Maybe the errors SD0054, SD0058, or SD0059 should have fired?  Not sure if maybe another rule should have fired?

Hi Barry, 

There is no check on consistency of define.xml Key Variables vs. variables actually present in datasets.

We are planning  a significant enhancement of define.xml validation soon. However it's not a part of the today's v2.0 release.

Thanks for your suggestion for new validation check.

Kind Regards,
