Add an NTE segment after OBX segment


I need to add an NTE segment after the OBX segment. I'm not a programmer so, I'm hoping to do this on the DTL Editor. Is it possible? If yes, how?

Some ORU messages from my EMR come in to Iris without NTE after the OBX. Thus, I need to add it in Iris For Health. 

Thank you!

Hey Patty.

If you just simply need the empty NTE to be added in using the DTL, you can set the first field to an empty string to force it to appear.

For example:

Will give this:

Note that my example is simply hardcoding the first OBX repetition of every first repeating field with no care for the content. You will likely need to do a for each where you evaluate if the source NTE:1 has a value, and then only set to an empty string if there is no content in the source.
