Re: Proposed EDGAR Amendments (File No. S7-05-00)

Dear Mr. Katz:

As a current subscriber to the EDGAR dissemination feed provided by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") via TRW, we write to provide the SEC with our comments in connection with EDGAR 7.0 and the proposed changes therein pursuant to File No. S7-05-00. Notably, we believe that these comments will serve to benefit all disseminators of EDGAR 7.0, the SEC and the general public.

By way of background, proposed data specification changes were first made available to disseminators on March 13, 2000; portions of this data specification, as well as the proposed changes in File No. S7-05-00, were discussed at a SEC/disseminator conference held on March 15, 2000. At that conference, SEC representatives deferred answering several questions until after the public comment period had concluded and further requested that these questions be submitted as comments for the rulemaking commission to review.

As a disseminator, serious concerns exist not only with the proposed changes in File No. S7-05-00, but also with the accompanying data specification changes. Accordingly, BLOOMBERG L.P. respectfully requests that the SEC review and consider the following comments for the purpose of better disseminating information through EDGAR 7.0:

We certainly hope that these comments prove helpful by highlighting certain issues that need to be addressed as soon as possible. If there is an additional information that we can supply to the SEC, or if you have any questions for us concerning our comments, please feel free to contact me.

We thank you, in advance, for your consideration.

Jim Burns
