CSV/XML file formats for Import/Update: (no mandatory fields):
- CSV column names
In the CSV file that gives result information per sample, new optional columns can be used: test_method_code[index] - index ranges from [1..15] – and a general free text field for the result as a whole: methods_comments (no index). The test_method_code has to be a valid code as has been defined by the Lab in the Admin back-end. The Description associated with the test_method_code will be taken from that pre-defined table.
- XML tags (+ example values):
The principle for the Batch Update operation is that the new (non-blank) values for the test method data in the update file will overwrite the existing values stored in the ADAMS database.
