ADAMS will carefully screen each record uploaded in a file. If one, or more, records contain a data error, the summary screen will display the error so that it may be corrected and the file re-transmitted. ADAMS will not accept any records from a file which contains an error(s).
- XML-file: If during the import of the XML file an error occurs in a sample record, the system will list the error providing an explanation and an index indicating the position of the sample in the file (starting from 1). Only a sample record that causes an error will be rejected. The remainder of the file will still be accepted.
- CSV-file: The first record of the CSV-file (line 0) is reserved for column titles that should exactly match the prescribed spelling (see tables below). Otherwise errors will be displayed. Error messages pertaining to the content will tell on which line (>0) the value for which column is wrong or missing. Duplication of the sample code (for the same sample type) is checked. Only a sample record that causes an error will be rejected. The remainder of the file will still be accepted.
