EXTRACTION PROBLEM: Changing item name for CRF's with data already entered in

Hello Kathryn,
Unfortunately from my experience with OC if an eCRF is removed from an event and this eCRF has data. The eCRF will remain attached to the subject’s record. The data will be viewable from the subject’s record but will not be available for extracting.

You can go back and select the http://oc_dm_test:8080/OpenClinica_DM_Test/images/bt_Remove.gif remove button for all those who have data in the eCRF. The data will continue to live there but things will be much clearer for the data entry person. If you decide you don’t want the data at all you can then select delete button and that will remove the old eCRF entirely from the subject’s record and the data.


Hope that piece of information is helpful to you.
Best Regards,

Maria,
Thanks for your advice (I work with Nadia). I like the idea of creating a new CRF (with a new name) with the numbers added to the item names and no longer using the old CRF that didn’t export in the correct order. If we do this, can we then re-define the events that used the old CRF and replace the old CRF with the new one? We already entered data in the old one so I’m not sure if it is possible at this point to remove it from an event.
Thanks,
Kathryn

Hello Nadia,
The extract order is by item name. We add a number in front of our item names and it does help the extract to come out in a more useable order. This may work for you as well. Unfortunately, once you have data in an eCRF you are not able to modify the item names. Even if you remove the data and try to modify the eCRF it will not allow you to change the item names because the eCRF has been saved to the library. Now one thing you can do is save the eCRF as new with the item name changes and discontinue using the one in production. If you do this OC will ask you to change the eCRF name.

Hope this information helps.

Subject: [Users] EXTRACTION PROBLEM: Changing item name for CRF's with data already entered in


Hello,
I had a general question about CRF extraction. I have a CRF that I realized, when extracting, does not extract in the order I need it to. Therefore I was wondering if it is possible to change the item names of the CRF’s I have already entered data into. I made a new rev for the CRF to test the format of the item name however now I want to actually change the item names of the CRF(with data entered). Is this at all possible? Or is it only possible to change the item names for the CRF’s before I entered data into the study.
Thanks!
