Defining the scope of element types

When you define an element type, its scope can be ordinary or global. By default, the element type is ordinary; it is available only to the VOB in which you create it. If you create the element type in an administrative VOB and define its scope as global, other VOBs that have AdminVOB hyperlinks to that administrative VOB can use the element type. If you want to define an element type globally, and you do not currently use a separate administrative VOB, define the element type in the PVOB.
