    We have a facility that wants all of our OBX’s for transcriptions to be combine by a “~”. they want us to take out the “OBX” and have the “~” instead of a carriage return. Has anyone done this before or have a good way to tackle this? Thanks for any and all ideas.

      Kevin,

      I think what the destination system most likely wants is for you to have a single OBX rather than multiple OBX segments. They’re probably expecting you to concatenate all of the OBX-5 fields into one, separating them with “~”, so it looks like this:

      Kevin,

      So just as Chris said you need to COPY all of the OBX info (except for OBX-5) from the first iteration of the inbound OBX segment to the first iteration of the outbound OBX segment – then:

      ITERATE over the inbound OBX group and COPY the OBX-5 field (OBX segment repetition) to the OBX-5 field repetition using the OBX group Iteration counter that you set in the OBX group ITERATE.

      The COPY would look something like this:

      1(0).1(0).1(%g1).OBX#5(0)  –> (0).1(0).10).OBX#5(%g1)  

      Assuming %g1 is your OBX grup counter – of course the address path notaiton will depend on your variant.
