As a generalization of countably -approximating posets, the concept of countably QC-approximating posets is introduced. With the countably -approximating property, some characterizations of generalized completely distributive lattices and generalized countably approximating posets are given. The main results are as follows: (1) a complete lattice is generalized completely distributive if and only if it is countably -approximating and weakly generalized countably approximating; (2) a poset having countably directed joins is generalized countably approximating if and only if the lattice of all -Scott-closed subsets of is weakly generalized countably approximating.
