    The Quality Assurance check named ATC006 (AllTables/CrossTable/"Any fields not coded as coding lists on the table definition") I think needs to be more specific for the field being tested.

    I was sitting with the DAD checks for the ART table– and we test both ART_RS and ART_ID for valid codes according to the table definitions. If a given record fails at least one of these checks then the error code ‘ATC006’ would not indicate which field failed.

    Perhaps it could be named ATC006_<fieldname> or something - or some other way of indicating we are talking of wrong code according to the table def. I think this could need further discussion.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    So far I understood the error codes as a more formal 'problem description' in the sense that it gives the information about which aspect of the data is wrong but not what data is wrong. I agree that the error codes alone are not very helpful, however, I would envision a QA tool to report back error messages such as:

    tblART - ART_RS: [ATC006] field not encoded as coding lists on the table definition

    This has the advantage that it is easy to see if multiple variables suffer from the same problem.

    Yes I agree with Simon
