HL7 Accelerator 2.0 and special character escape sequences for HL7 delimiters RRS feed

  • Question



    Does the Accelerator accept the special character escape sequences for HL7 delimiters, ie \T\ for Subcomponent Separator '&' or \F\ for the Field Separator?  If not, how can I prevent parse errors when delimiter characters are entered into text or string fields, ie 'M & M Towing Company'?  I hope that we can use a pipe line process to translate the '&' to \T\ and it is automatically translated back to '&' when it is mapped to xml by the accelerator, since these escape sequences are part of the HL7 standard.
