    Hello, I would like to move all inbound repeating subfield values in OBX5 to a outbound NTE 3..

    Here is my mapping in xlate file

    2(0).1(0).1(%f1).0(%g1).OBX(0).00573(0)  —- > 2(0).1(0).1(%f1).0(0).NTE(%g1).00098(0)

    for example in bound

    ..

    OBX|1|||A1~B2~C3

    ….

    OBX|4|ST|||DATA1~DATA2~DATA3

    with that xlate, my outbound NTE3 only have the first subfield value

    NTE|1||A1

    ..

    NTE|1||DATA1

    I know i need to do looping or repeating against those subfields but i dont know how..

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

      Not sure if this will work but here goes…

      Iterate through the NTE segment with a counter.  Build each NTE based each OBX:5 field.  I believe it is just a matter of nesting the iterates and where you put your variable.

      Hongle,

      I’m assuming that you are already performing the iterate on the OBX segment because I see the %g1 iteration variable.  It appears that you have the iteration variables in the wrong place….simply guessing here since I don’t have your exact variant  or xlate to view.  

      I believe you would want an iterate inside of your OBX iterate.  Then you should have your %g1 variable for the iteration of the segments and the %f1 variable for the iteration of the subfields.  It should look similar to this:

      2(0).1(0).1(0).0(%g1).OBX(0).00573(%f1)  —- > 2(0).1(0).1(0).0(%g1).NTE(0).00098(%f1)

      Another thing to remember…check your HL7 variants to make sure the OBX.5 field and the NTE.3 field are set as repeating fields.  

      Hope this helps….

      To get values from repeating subfields, you need to use the parens at the end like this: 2(0).1(0).1(0).0(0).OBX(0).00573(%f1). You can of course hard code the iteration of the repeating subfield like this 2(0).1(0).1(0).0(0).OBX(0).00573(0), 2(0).1(0).1(0).0(0).OBX(0).00573(1).

      A great way to see how this work is to run your message through the HL7 testing tool.
