These tables are used to prepare, review and export data to the Catalogue of Life. All except tblCoLmetadata begin with "tmp" to indicate their temporary nature rather than "tbl" for tables that are part of the continuing species file data. TmpCoL_IDs, tmpCoLPending and tmpCoLReview are used while generating or reviewing the data. They do not contain data used by the Catalogue of Life.
There is a set of archive tables not listed here. The design matches the tables listed below except the table name begins with "arcv" instead of "tmp". The columns are the same except for two added initial columns FileID and PendingReleaseDate to identify the species file and the date generated.
