Please see “Production Methods in-depth” on page 11 for more information.
Required if <ProductionMethod> (see above) is Calc and a customized calculation setting is wanted. If no CalcStyle is stated and <ProductionMethod> is Calc the Non-Breaking Horizontal production method is used. Please consult page 15 for a list of reserved calculation names.
