    OK, I plead ignorance when it comes to TCL code. I have just been informed that the Diagnosis Codes that are being sent to Quest need to have the decimal point removed from the code. The code is listed in DG1-3 and so the decimal pioint will need to be removed and the code sent without it. I can remember from class that there is a way to find the DG1 segment (could be more than 1) and then DG1-3 and strip out the decimal. I remember something similar with SSN’s and the dashes. Unfortunately my laptop crashed and I have lost a lot of the TCL code that we produced in class (should have backed up). Can anyone help me get this setup or has anyone else had to do this?

      Here’s how I would do it, although I’m sure Charlie and Jim and others will have other ways, too.

      I would use a tcl fragment in the xlate like this:

      Code:

      regsub -all {.} [lindex $xlateInVals 0] “” tmp; set xlateOutVals [list $tmp]

      Obviously, there are other perfectly good ways to do it, like string map.

      Kevin,

      If you are using an Xlate, ITERATE through the GT1 segment (or group depending on your message structure).

      Then at the appropriate field COPY Action (inside the ITERATE) reference a Tcl proc or insert Tcl code to remove the period. You could use string map or regsub Tcl command.

      If you want a proc for doing a regsub, email me and I will send it to you for use or reference.

      Max,

      In my case, not necessarily ‘better’ just ‘different’ and ‘preference’.

      There are a lot of ways to solve each problem. Everyone needs to determine what they prefer to do.

      Seeing differnt potential solutions provides us with options – options are good.
