Thank you, I'll have a look at it.

I did open a WRC Support request about it, but still waiting to hear back if it can be added to our current release.

For those interested. We copied part of the validation check, and updated with some options to truncate as per the schema.

It can be called with:

set tSC = ##class(User.Hl7RangeCheck).RangeChk(.pRequest)

Include EnsHL7

Class User.Hl7RangeCheck

quit:($ZSTRIP(##class(%String).LogicalToDisplay(pSeg), "<>W" ) = "") quit:(pSeg.Name = "") //$$$ERROR($$$EnsErrGeneral, "Cannot validate segment schemas without a segment name. Unable to validate segment "_$get(pSegNum)_".")

Hi,

It's a few particular down stream applications that have strict limits on its field sizes. I can't just drop the message if it doesn't conform as they still require the data, and it is valid output from the source system.

I know I could update the DTL to go through every field and truncate as needed, however that would need every field to have the limit put on it, which gets a bit excessive with the number of fields that need the limit placed on.

I was mainly trying to see if there was something already existing that was able to just use the schema before I went down that rabbit hole.
