  • Import CSV file with quotes

    Forgive me if this is in the wrong area of the forum. I am trying to create a simple import of a CSV file with quotes. I am running the script belown in the preprocessor and have just one problem: If the field contains a comma, it tries to make it into two fields.

    Example "AAA111111","XX-01-87(06)","SMITH, JOE P",07/XX/07,

    I get the fields:
    JOE P

    I am new to JS, but I am pretty sure that there should be a way to ignore a comma inside of a set of quotes. Any help would be appreciated.



    // Modify the message variable below to pre process data
    message = message.replace(/[\r\n]/g, "\n");

    var columnnames = new Array("Chart","XRay","PatientName","DateScheduled" ,"DOB","Sex","ReferenceCode","Doctor","ReferenceNo ","Recall","Reason");
    var nofcolumns = 11;
    var lines = new Array();
    var newmessage = new String();
    newmessage = "<!-- Generated using Mirth PreProc -->\n";
    newmessage += "<Root>\n";
    rawData = message;
    lines = rawData.split("\n");
    for (var i=0;i<lines.length;i++) {
    currline = lines[i];

    newmessage += "<Patient>\n";
    var data = new Array();
    data = currline.split(Chr()",");
    for (var j = 0; j < nofcolumns; j++){
    newmessage += "<" + columnnames[j] + ">" + data[j] + "</" + columnnames[j] + ">\n";
    newmessage += "</Patient>\n";
    newmessage += "</Root>\n";
    return newmessage

    return message;
