    Let me ask you why you need it? Unless a result if confirmed through UD (unless for LT Characteristics), you still have the possibilities to change the value later. So I think any change in results later, will be a gross compliant issue for the product delivered to your customers. Have you checked these points with your business users?

      Yes I have tried befor UD, but not before result recording.

      Because, I think the CoA basically contains the result that is recorded after analysis so it should be done after results recording.

      So, I raised the query.

    It all depends on how you setup the certificate profile. You have provided very little information regarding what you have done.

    Are you trying to do these manually or automatically? (two different processes)

    Are you using resutls from the inspection lot or batch?

    Are all your characteristics in the profile set up as required?

    In the profile, do you have a UD required to create the COA?

    Do you WANT to publish a COA at these times or are you trying to PREVENT publication at these times?

    The better the question asked, and the more info provided, the more we can help.

    Yes.. depending on how your COA profile is set up, how configuration is done, and how you want to produce it, it can be possible to create a COA before results recording, before the UD and after. It doesn't mean it will look right or have all the information you want on it.

      Hi Craig,

      Sorry to jump in this way. I would like to ask a question in further as I see you answer it before.

      Although the new text elements are added in the script form for CoA, it does not show in the drop-list in the CoA profile which use the updated script form? Is there any other necessary configuration to be done?
      Thank you very much.
