  • Replacing + in name

    Our registration adds a + symbol to the name in order designate the patient as confidential. Normally they add a space then + and the regex has no issues removing it. But when they don't add a space like SMITH+ it doesn't pick it up I've tried different javascript and the regular expression in the transformer but I can't seem to get it remove the +. The regular expression I have is [&\/\\#+^()$~%\\^\\'":?*@^<>{}()]. Any help would much appreciated.

    PHP Code:
    var myField msg['PID']['PID.5']['PID.5.1'].toString();
    myField myField.replace(/[\s\+]*$/, '');
    msg['PID']['PID.5']['PID.5.1'] = myField;​ 
    that will handle extra spaces before or after the plus sign also.

      Worked great, thank you.
      final code
      var mapping;
      var MIDDLE = msg['PID']['PID.5']['PID.5.1'].toString();
      MIDDLE = MIDDLE.replace(/[\s\+]*$/, '');
      mapping = msg['PID']['PID.5']['PID.5.1'] = MIDDLE;
      channelMap.put('MIDDLE', validate(mapping, '', new Array()));​

        That can just be with one liners like below if you are just trying to put it in the channelMap and/or assign it back to msg.

        PHP Code:
        $c('middle',msg['PID']['PID.5']['PID.5.1'].toString().replace(/[\s\+]*$/, ''))
        msg['PID']['PID.5']['PID.5.1'] = msg['PID']['PID.5']['PID.5.1'].toString().replace(/[\s\+]*$/, ''

        Looks like you are viewing the generated script from a mapper step. That generated script, while it works, isn't really what you would code yourself.

          Thanks pacmano, I realized after I posted that I could apply your solution to the source, which makes way more sense then changing each channel. Appreciate your help on this.
