How to report Date/Time that a batch was submitted for Acquisition.

Using Report Builder 10.2 for MassHunter. I would like to show the data/time that a batch was submitted for acquisition at the top of a report, but Batch-AnalysisTimeStamp shows the time that the batch was processed for DA. I see no other time stamp options under the Batch data binding.

  • A little more info: I have a table at the top of my report with the only data binding is BatchAttribute. I want the table to list batch data path, analyst name, and time the batch was submitted for acquisition. The first two are OK, but Batch->AnalysisTimeStamp shows the time the data was processed for quantitation instead of when it was submitted for acquisition.

    I have spent hours trying to get this to work. I certainly don't fully understand how data bindings work. Definitely feel like I'm fumbling around in the dark without a flashlight.

  • Finally managed to get it working. I added Binding Name:Sample->Data name:SelectedSample->Filters:<Top 1>. That allowed me to select Binding name:Sample->Field:AcqDataTime in the textbox, and it shows the data/time that the first sample was run.

    Not sure if it's the best way to do it, but it works.

  • Hi ,

    I was just trying to set up a template to test exactly what you did. As far as I know that is the only way to have something like a worklist start time show in the report. I cannot find any worklist date or time information that comes over from acq. The acq time of the first sample in the worklist would be the closest you can get.
