Is the annotated CRF (aCRF) used in submission required to be the one pulled out from EDC and annotated manually, or is any format of an aCRF fine as long as it includes all the annotations supporting the tabulation datasets and define file?

Hello, all is in the title.

The public bitbucket repo seems abandoned (last update 2019-11-08) and only versions until 3.0.2 are available. Do I miss something?

Attached a screenshot from the validation report generated by P21 CLI 1.0.6, in the WhereCluase, I specified [LBCAT NOTIN ("COAGULATION" "URINALYSIS")], length at this VLM is 6, value contains NORMAL/HIGH/LOW only, but the report returns an error, seems the validator didn't catch correct records when validating this VLM. Could the team has a look on it? Thank you in advance!

Define.xml file created using P21 Community I can only view either with IE or Edge with IE option. Can we use any other browser as IE is not going to be supported by microsoft any more. Please suggest.

Thank you,

I have a situation in which we have an ADSL for an ISE. We want to also use the same ISE data but add some Natural History population flags and new analysis parameters. Would be okay to add these population flags to a dataset called ADSLNH that contains the core variables in ADSL plus the new Natural History population flags? It would be  subject-level-dataset. So, I'm not sure if it will throw a P21 error for having 2 subject-level-datasets.


Any advice is helpful,
