Technical support questions about SEND standard and validation rules

June 20, 2024

Hi Team,

I am using pinnacle 21 to validate a SEND define.xml v2.1, but got an Error below: 

DD0073: For Define-XML v2.0, the Origin Type attribute must have a value of 'CRF', 'Derived', 'Assigned', 'Protocol', 'eDT', or 'Predecessor' for SDTM and ADaM data and 'COLLECTED', 'DERIVED', 'OTHER', or 'NOT AVAILABLE' for SEND data. For Define-XML v2.1, the Origin Type attribute must have a value of 'Collected', 'Derived', 'Assigned', 'Protocol', or 'Predecessor' for SDTM and SEND data and 'Derived', 'Assigned', or 'Predecessor' for ADaM.

Dear Support,

Today my P21C validation report shows a problem (the screen shot seen below).

Image removed.

Then I uninstalled my current using P21C and then download the new one (seen below screen shot); and installed it.

But the problem still exists in the validation report.

I'm trying to validate a sample xpt file but I keep getting this error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:;


What could I be doing wrong?
Here's the command I am executing:

java -jar p21-client-1.0.7.jar --engine.version="FDA 2204.1" --standard=send --standard.version=3.1 --source.send="C:\Users\User\Documents\practice\bw.xpt" --cdisc.ct.send.version=2023-03-31 --report="C:\Users\User\Documents\report.xlsx" --config="C:\Users\User\Documents\Pinnacle 21 Community\configs"

Hello All,

FDA Validation rules 1.6 were published in December 2022.

I wonder if the newest FDA engine 2204.1 in P21 Community v4.0.1 includes these? I haven't found any documentation so far.

This warning (Invalid TSVAL value for STENDTC) populated  for 3.0 study when STENDTC is "NOT AVAILABLE" which I think cased by TSVAL variable is not in ISO 8601 format. 

I wonder what value should put in the TSVAL when Study End Date is not available that won't lead to val tool warnings, because removing STENDTC will cause another warning "Missing STENDTC Trial Summary Parameter". Thank you!
