If an event type has been marked inactive, it can easily be reactivated again if the cancer group decides that they want to use that medical event type after all. To activate an inactive event type:

1. Start the Cancer Group Administration utility. See Starting the Cancer Group Administration Utility for instructions on how to do this.

2. Select the Event Types tab on the CCR Administration window.

3. Double-click on the event type that you want to make inactive in the Event Types grid on the tab. The Add / Edit Event Type window will open displaying the event type's current settings.

4. See The Add / Edit Event Type Window for a description of this window.

5. Click on the Is Active? checkbox so that it is checked (meaning the medical event type is now active).

6. Click the Save button to save your changes. The window will close and the changes will be saved. The event type will once again show up as an option when selecting the event type for a medical event.

To close the window without making any changes to the event type (including making it active), click the Cancel button. If you have made any changes on the window, a dialog will open asking you to confirm that you want to close the window without saving your changes. Click Yes to continue to close the window or No to return to the Add / Edit Event Type window.

As soon as you make a change on the Add / Edit Event Type window, the text on the Save button will turn bold red, indicating the need to click on the button to save your changes.
