Edit Specimens in a Shipment
To edit specimen data, open an incoming shipment in edit mode, place the cursor in the field that you would like to edit and begin typing. Some fields, such as Material Type, offer a code list from which to choose values. To open this list, simply double-click in a field and press the Ellipsis (...) button that appears. To add a value to the field, click on a value in the list to highlight it and then press the OK button.
Users can change multiple fields within a column via the Mass Change and Find and Replace options.
Changing specimen data to differ from the imported manifest will open the Add Discrepancy dialog. Specimen data from the manifest which is edited manually or via scanning will result in the Add Discrepancy dialog opening. Enter Notes for the discrepancy or choose which value to display in the editor, then select OK to add the discrepancy. Select Cancel to change the specimen data without adding a discrepancy. If specimen data from the manifest is updated via an import file, a different Add Discrepancy dialog will open. You can choose which value to copy for Data Entry (observed value from the import, manifest value, or no change) then select OK to add discrepancies to all fields where the import differs from the manifest. You may select Cancel to finish the import without adding any discrepancies.
Editing additional specimen data that was not imported with the manifest will not open the Add Discrepancy dialog.
Data set as the shipment's manifest can be viewed on the Shipments Editor by selecting View Manifest from the column header menu. Manifest data cells will appear with a gray background in the Shipments Editor.
