With OpenLAB CDS 2.0 it will be possible to refer to an external constant file in order to use externally stored parameters in calculations or reports.
With OpenLAB CDS A versions you could follow a 2 step approach to embed such a list of compound specific parameters into your report template:
1. Define an internal report parameter to store the constants. The name/value pairs need to be entered as a single long string, where the name and values are separated by e.g. a semicolon. (Benzene;98.0;Toluene;97.5;.....)
2. Define a group repeat based on compound names and extract the constant from the string and store it in a variable with "compound name" as a unique key value
Syntax to find the compound specific start position of recovery value in the parameter string:
Syntax to extract the compound specific recovery value from start position to the next 4 characters.
In order to use the attached example template you require a method with identified or calibrated peaks named Benzene and Toluene (mind the spelling!). This template can be used with OpenLAB CDS A.01.05 or higher.
