Edit Segments and Fields

Edit segments and fields, so you capture the data elements pertinent to your specification. Due to the nature of the HL7 standard (HL7 is object-oriented), any changes made are global changes and affect the entire profile.

There are two ways to access segments and fields:

1. Edit within Each Message

Click the “+” sign to expand a message, then edit the segment.


2. Edit from the Segment Library

Right-click a message, and select Segment... A separate window displays the Segment Library. Expand the segment you wish to edit by clicking the plus sign.


To edit each field or individual component, click on the title. Under the Configuration tab, make the changes to each field attribute.
