I have attached the release notes for OpenLab CDS 2.3. This document outlines the major feature modifications introduced with each release of OpenLab CDS 2.x from 2.1 to 2.3.
23_CDS_ReleaseNotes (EN).pdf 177.2 KB
I forgot to address your other questions. In-place upgrades from a OpenLab CDS v2.1 WorkStation Plus to a v2.3 WorkStation Plus are supported, meaning that your 2.1 software does not need to be removed in order to install 2.3. The data, methods, reports, etc... should transfer without issue.
thank you for the fast reply *insert medal emoticon*
Ok since we currently using the Content Manager we need Workstation plus.
I just check the pdf File and the new features look very good.
Loading methods from another project
Allows authorized users to browse to another project, open a method and save a copy of that method to their current project or link it to a result set.
Overlay chromatograms from different projects
Allows users to load data from other projects to compare results.
Zoom in/out of report preview with mouse wheel.
1.) During the run ? I recognized that it was missing in 2.1
Use of complex custom fields in filter, grouping and sorting expressions.
2.) Can we get a pdf File, for the use of it, when we purchase the Software and the qualification service ?
Use the blank subtraction to calculate a clean chromatogram with contribution of the analytes only.
3.) Does it substract the Injection Peak as well ?
4.) XML Support. Do this Version have XML Support now ? Like the good old chemstation.
Thank you very much. If you reply please refer to the numbers.
1) This was a feature added that allows the user to zoom in and out when previewing a report by holding down the Ctrl key and using the scroll wheel on the mouse.
2) I am not sure what documentation might be available with a new purchase or upgrade to 2.3. This is a question better suited for your Agilent sales rep.
3) I am not quite sure what it is you are asking. Ideally, a blank injection would not have any peaks of interest. Would you mind elaborating?
4) No, there is no XML functionality similar to that used in OL ChemStation (as outlined in the XML Connectivity Guide: https://www.agilent.com/cs/library/usermanuals/public/M8301-90100_ChemStation-XML_ENG.pdf )
1) thank you very much. this is a very helpful Option.
2) Ok I will write them an Email.
3) With blank subtraction I meant, than every signal from the blank injection is subtracted from the fallowing injections. So the upcoming injections don't even show the injection Peak. So the result will be just a straight line from beginning to the end. Just the peak from the substance we determine.
4) This is sad. We want to import/export our sequences. But soon we have a training with a person from Agilent. It will take place in our location.And hopefully we find a solution for this problem. Hopefully the guy from the IT Department take over on this. I am definitely not the right person for this. But I told him I support him.
Actually we want to upgrade our Open Labs from Version 2.1 to 2.3. But if there is no acceptable import/export function, then maybe the best choice is Open Labs Chemstation Edition. I need to discuss this when we have Agilent in our house.
I am sorry that have so many questions concerning nearly everything.
My duty is to transfer the methods from an old Chemstation to a new Open Labs. I never worked with a GC before. Only HPLC/ICP -OES/MS.
The major Problem is that everyone in the QC is so busy, to help me when I have a question.
PS: But I want to thank you very much with everything you helped me already. ryoboyle

You are very welcome mr.white.
I think the only lingering question left on this post is related to the blank subtraction. And you are correct, if you are performing solvent blank injections and the there is an injection peak in the blank data file you select to use for blank subtraction then your signal should just be a flat baseline with the compound peaks from the sample you injected.
Blank subtraction does a datapoint-by-datapoint subtraction, so I guess the answer to mr.white is yes, it would subtract the "injection" peak, assuming that it was the same in both the blanks and the samples.
