A recent question was asked me  as follows:

How to change the Segment Terminator in the HIPAA 837 schema to ‘~’ (tilt)? I think in my schema currently I have CF/LF. I need to change that to ‘~’. Currently my output comes like this.

ISA*00*          *00*          *ZZ*1234567        *ZZ*7654321        *070129*1247*U*00401*000010247*0*P*>


I need the output like the following

ISA*00*          *00*          *ZZ*1234567        *ZZ*7654321        *070129*1247*U*00401*000010247*0*P*:~GS*HC*1234567*7654321*20070129*124745*10247*X*004010X098A1

This is actually not set in the schema, cialis but in the port configuration, discount when you set up the send port you specify a wrap segments, patient along  with the original segment terminator

In this case you want to have Wrap Segments set to No, which will not put a CR/LF after the segment terminator.

After you make the change the setting here, you need to restart either the HIPAA service or the EDI service.
