Message Information

Viewing Messages in Workgroup

Workgroup software includes several features that provide detailed information about the messages and values contained in HL7 logs.

Message Definition

When you are analyzing a message log, you sometimes need to quickly capture an overview of a message or segment. Workgroup provides a message definition feature.

In the Messages area, right-click anywhere in a segment and select Message Definition. A Message Definition dialog box appears, with details on the field position, field names, and values in each field.

Tooltips

When you are analyzing a message log, you sometimes need to know the position of a field. Workgroup lets you determine the position (and the name of the field) without counting pipes.

Click anywhere in the Messages area, then hover over a field. A mouse-over tooltip appears, listing the field name and position.
