CEDEN_C_217ChemistryBR;MDL is negative but not "-88".Generates an error when the MDL is any negative value except for "-88".
CEDEN_C_218ChemistryBR;Multiple 000NONPJ samples are not unique, conventions are to use Replicate or CollectionTime to make results unique.There are situations within a batch when two identical sample types are used for QA reasons and the only way to differentiate between them is to give them each a different CollectionTime or Replicate. For example when more than one 000NONPJ, MS or LabDuplicate is digested, extracted or analyzed in the same batch on the same day but are not lab replicates of each other, one CollectionTime should be 0:00 and the other 0:15 or one should have a Replicate of 1 and the other a Replicate of 2.
CEDEN_C_219ChemistryBR;Multiple LabQA samples are not unique, conventions are to use Replicate or CollectionTime to make results unique.There are situations within a batch when two identical sample types are used for QA reasons and the only way to differentiate between them is to give them each a different CollectionTime or Replicate. For example when more than one LabBlank, CRM or LCS is digested, extracted or analyzed in the same batch on the same day but are not lab replicates of each other, one CollectionTime should be 0:00 and the other 0:15 or one should have a Replicate of 1 and the other a Replicate of 2.
CEDEN_C_220ChemistryBR;No negative value other than -88 is accepted within the CollectionDepthColumn.For the CollectionDepthColumn there should be no negative value except the null value of "-88".
CEDEN_C_221ChemistryBR;PrepPreservationDate should not be before SampleDate.The PrepPreservationDate should be >= to the SampleDate. If there was no PrepPreservation, PrepPreservation equals "None" or "Not Recorded", then it should be the default PrepPreservationDate of "01/Jan/1950 00:00". 000NONPJ data is excluded.
CEDEN_C_222ChemistryBR;ProjectCode cannot be "Not Recorded" for a Chemistry 000NONPJ.If the StationCode is "000NONPJ", the ProjectCode cannot be "Not Recorded". The default value for a 000NONPJ ProjectCode is "Not Applicable".

CEDEN_C_230ChemistryBR;"-88" results need an appropriate ResQualCode."-88", i.e. null value, results need an appropriate ResQualCode to qualify the result. ResQualCodes help to explain why no result is recorded.
CEDEN_C_231ChemistryBR;RL is negative but not -88The RL default value is "-88".
CEDEN_C_232ChemistryBR;RL not >= MDL.The RL (Reporting Limit) is expected to be greater than or equal to the MDL (Method Detection Limit).
CEDEN_C_233ChemistryBR;SampleDate must be equal to or before AnalysisDate for a 000NONPJ sample. Generates an error when the SampleDate is greater than the AnalysisDate. Excludes null AnalysisDate of "01/Jan/1950 00:00".
CEDEN_C_234ChemistryBR;SampleDate must be equal to or before AnalysisDate for a LABQA sample. Generates an error when the SampleDate is greater than the AnalysisDate. Excludes null AnalysisDate of "01/Jan/1950 00:00".
CEDEN_C_235ChemistryBR;CollectionTime was not "0:00" or in 15 min increments for a LABQA or 000NONPJ sample.For two LABQA or 000NONPJ samples in the same LabBatch with the same SampleTypeCode, in most cases, the only way to differentiate between them is the SampleDate, CollectionTime, Replicate or the LabReplicate. If collection time is utilized to differentiate samples, to be comparable, a 15 min interval is utilized starting with 00:00.
CEDEN_C_236ChemistryBR;Could not find the MS this is a duplicate of.For each matrix spike duplicate (MSD) there should be an associated matrix spike (MS).
CEDEN_C_237ChemistryBR;Could not find the native sample for this MS.Generates error when columns A-F, H, J-K, O, P, S, U-Z, AI and AK for a SampleTypeCode containing MS does not match an associated original sample. 000NONPJ StationCodes and blank StationCodes are not included in this check.
CEDEN_C_238ChemistryBR;Default "-88" or -MDL result values with a ResQualCode of "NR", "NA" or "ND" are accepted by CEDEN but are stored as blank values with the associated ResQualCode.Default "-88" or -MDL result values with a ResQualCode of "NR", "NA" or "ND" are accepted by CEDEN but are stored as blank values with the associated ResQualCode.
CEDEN_C_239ChemistryBR;Did not expect LabReplicate to be 2.For each LabReplicate of 2 there should be an associated original sample. Exceptions for this are "000NONPJ" station codes where the original sample is not included and the LabReplicate of 2 is flagged with a QACode of "QAX".
CEDEN_C_240ChemistryBR;DigestExtractDate must be equal to default date or greater than SampleDate when DigestExtractMethod is "Not Recorded" or equal to default date when is "None" or DigestExtractDate > SampleDate.DigestExtractDate must be equal to default date or greater than SampleDate when DigestExtractMethod is "Not Recorded" or DigestExtractDate must be equal to default date when DigestExtractMethod is "None" or DigestExtratDat must be greater than SampleDate for all other DigestExtractMethods.
CEDEN_C_241ChemistryBR;DilutionFactor was less than one.Unless the sample is concentrated the result should be greater than one
CEDEN_C_243ChemistryBR;Duplicate LabBatch record already in database. The LabBatch must be unique within the CEDEN database.Generates when the LabBatch, within the LabBatch worksheet, is found within the database and the LabAgencyCode, LabSubmissionCode, BatchVerificationCode, SubmittingAgencyCode and LabBatchComments, within the LabBatch worksheet, are equal to the database.
CEDEN_C_244ChemistryBR;Expected MatrixName of "blankwater" or "labwater" for a SampleTypeCode of [SampleTypeCode].The MatrixName is expected to be "blankwater" or "labwater" for the following SampleTypeCodes: "DIBlank", "EquipBlank", "FieldBlank", "FilterBlank" and "TravelBlank".
CEDEN_C_245ChemistryBR;FractionName was "Dissolved" with no filtration listed in the PrepPreservationName.It is expected that the PrepPreservationName include "FieldFiltered" or "LabFiltered" if the FractionName is "Dissolved". This error SHOULD NOT be ignored. Dissolved fractions should be filtered. In some cases Laboratory QA have a different PrepPreservationName than the normal samples, e.g. the LABQA have a prep of "None", but the program keeps the fraction the same to match the normal samples.
CEDEN_C_246ChemistryBR;If PrepPreservationName is "Not Recorded", then the PrepPreservation Date should be the default date of "01/Jan/1950 00:00".This error will come up when the PrepPreservationName is either "None" or "Not Recorded" and the PrepPreservationDate is not "01/Jan/1950 00:00".
CEDEN_C_247ChemistryBR;Warning: LabBatch already exists in database.The LabBatch already exists in CEDEN. Check that your LabBatch is correct with the laboratory hard copy report. If you are not adding to previously submitted data then you need to make the LabBatch unique. By appending on your agency code or an acronym for your project to the LabBatch it can make your LabBatch unique. If you are intentionally adding to an already submitted batch then all values within the LabBatch worksheet must be equal to the previously submitted data.
CEDEN_C_300ChemistryNumericCollection Time is not correct. It can not be blank and must be a text field in the format hh:mm not a date field.The format for the field cannot be a "date/time" format. The template uses a defalut of "General" as the field type.
