REFILE-TABLE-China preliminary October commodity trade data

 (Refiles to add named item code)
    BEIJING, Nov 8 (Reuters) - China's General Administration of Customs released
preliminary trade data for October on Wednesday. The tables below show selected commodity
and energy trade volumes, compared with the previous month and a year earlier, as well as
year-to-date figures.
    The previous month and previous year figures do not reflect official revisions, which
have not been provided. The percentage changes for year-to-date figures come directly from
Customs. All other percentage changes are calculated by Reuters. Net figures are calculated
by Reuters, including the percentage changes, even for year-to-date.
    Detailed final figures from Customs with a further breakdown will be released later in
the month.
