If you use the Data Table Wizard in Morpho to describe (not import or create) a data table, Morpho will insert a value of "ecogrid://..." for the eml>dataset>dataTable>physical>distribution>online>url element, even though that document doesn't exist (and shouldn't exist) on the KNB. If the user doesn't create or import a dataTable, no ecogrid URL should be generated since the data isn't on the KNB. See bowdish.217.2 for an example of a data package with this problem.

Using v1.8.0 I found that an ecogrid//... url was not generated for a Described table. This indicates that the primary issue in the bug has been resolved.

However, I did find that when first opening the and switching to that described table (my test had an imported data table as well as a described one), I got an error message about the imported table's data url (even though it exists and should not be referenced in the second, described entity). When only working with a described table (deleted the imported table) I get a generic message about the file not being available (as expected).

I'll resolve the odd URL message and close this bug.

the old URL was just a product of stale values. message is gone now, and there are no references to empty/fake data files
