Different standards in subprocedures

Good morning to all but one! LOL
 
I was wondering if you could program a procedure whose standard is a single calibrator. But since I have two, I programmed them into two different subprocedures with the intention that if one of them is not, for whatever reason, able to use the other. In the main procedure there is no reference to the standards.
 
The case is that one of them is expired and the Runtime will not let me even begin, when the one I'm going to use is the other. What I can do?
 
Another question that comes next is whether I can program the two together in the same procedure and by jumps activate one or the other and also that only the one I have used in the report. It's possible? But I suspect not...

Emilio,

I know exactly what is it you are trying to do.  MET/CAL is not friendly when it comes to flexible standards around Instrument FSC.
 

Here is a link to a free procedure from Cal Lab Solutions that will show you exactly how to write procedures in a more flexible format.

There are some great Articles / papers and other information on the site about how to write better MET/CAL procedures. 

If you have any questions please let me know.

You can also procedures sectioning.  Refer to the MET/CAL help.

I've personally used sectioning for this application. When I was writing procedures for DC Power Supplies, I wrote procedures to cover two different standards for RMS Voltage measurement on ripple. I put in the description of the sections to only choose one of them, so if the user had the URE3 available, they'd use that check box, and if they only had the 3400B available, they'd use that check box. It worked great.
