Combine Multiple HL7 Files


Hi Friends!

Today, I exported many HL7 messages out of Mirth Connect.

Export Mirth HL7 Messages

No matter what I did, I couldn’t get Mirth to put all the messages into one file :-(

I had to figure out a way to combine these files, so I could analyze them with my favorite HL7 Viewer: Interface Explorer.

Surprisingly, I discovered Microsoft Word does this easily!!!

Instructions below…

MSWORD Combine Files

Here’s how it looks in MS Word – combined multiple files into one document!

To save this document as HL7 text file,

  1. File > Save As
  2. Save as type: Plain Text
  3. Click Save.

If you get File Conversion popup…(update: don’t click “insert line breaks”)

  1. Click Insert line breaks
  2. Click OK

You now have one file with all your HL7 files exported out of Mirth!

Here’s how the MSH.txt file looks inĀ Interface Explorer.
