    Any suggestions on how to pull the date out this segment?

    OBX|52||||* MERGEFORMAT }}{Efldrslt {Efs22Elang1024Elangfe1024Enoproof 02/27/2008}}}{Efs22

    The message is an MDM^T02 and the OBX:5 contain the rtf in question.  The procedure date always occurs in 52nd OBX.  I need to see if I can grab this date and copy it to TXA:4.  I am not sure how to single out just the date 😕

      I’ve never worked with rtf data so maybe I’m over-simplifying this but would this work once you have your OBX-5 data:

      set a [string first / $obx5]

      set rtf_date [string range $a [expr $a -2] [expr $a +7]]

      It seems to work for me in hcitcl but not sure how it may work for you in what you are attempting to do.

      Thanks Thomas for Tcl code.  The issue is the receiving system wants the procedure date in time in TXA:4.  This is the most accurate date, since the doctors dictate days after the actual procedure.  In the 52nd OBX is where I is see the procedure date and time.  So, my theory is I can iterate through the OBXs, find the 52nd one, put the date in a temp variable and then copy to TXA:4.  I haven’t tried doing something like this before, so I welcome any suggestions or comments.  Thanks again for you help  😀
