I am working with an Agilent 6420A LC-QQQ with a 1290 LC. The MassHunter Workstation software is Version B.08.00, Build 8.0.8023.0. I am attempting to create a new acquisitlon method by copying and pasting analyte acquisition information from another worklist. Once the acquisition method reaches a certain number of lines, the instrument has trouble downloading the setpoints to the instrument. I can remove analytes, line by line, until the instrument is able to successfully download the method. It doesn't matter if I copy and paste compound information to the list, or append lines and type in the information.
I have never encountered this problem before. I don't think I have exceeded some sort of size limit for an acquisition method, as we have other acquisition methods that are longer.
