[NMusers] Guidence regarding scm

Dear NMUsers,
I am using AGE, CRCL and Body weight as continuous covariates and Gender as
categorical covariate for scm. When I start scm by using PsN the scm starts
but there is a warning message stating "Warning: Individuals were found to
have multiple values in the CRCL column, but CRCL was not set as time
varying in the configuration file. Results may not be as expected". In my
data file the values for CRCL are not similar for all the samples of few
patients because there is a time difference of almost 72 hours between
1st and last sample.
Can someone guide me is this a normal Situation or should I define CRCL in
time_varying command in my configuration file. If so how can i write this
command in configuration file....?

Waiting for Kind suggestions....
