SCR 3-1116: Align Online PSDD with pdsdd.full

Priority: medium

Problem Summary: Some element information appears different when displayed using the on-line Data Dictionary tool as compared with pdsdd.full. For example, the on-line DD shows REPETITIONS to have MINIMUM_COLUMN_VALUE=2 whereas pdsdd.full has MINIMUM=2; both apparently mean the same thing, but that is not clear to the user. Not only does MINIMUM make more sense ("column" is only meaningful if you know how the underlying data base is -- or was -- organized), but MINIMUM_COLUMN_VALUE is supposed to be REAL and is being set to an integer value. The identical problem arises with ITEMS; there are presumably others scattered throughout the Dictionary.
