    Alternative Routine for viewing Meditech Data Definitions (MAGIC)

    There is an alternative method for viewing Meditech Data Definitions that will show all of their segments. 

    Step 1: Create a report with Report DPM NPR.PROC with any report title you like.

    Step 2: Add a Report Title and Active field of Y.

    Step 3: Add Select Field COMMON.free with operator IG and Prompt PLEASE SELECT AN OPTION

    Step 4: File and translate your report.

    Step 5: Use option 8 (Edit Elements) to add the following attributes to the COMMON.c.free field:

     CH=DPM,SEG,ELE
     FCL1=IF{$FE.NPR.DDEF.VIEW $["FE.NPR.DDEF.VIEW"](A)X;
     FCL1=@W.err("The view routine does not exist on your system.")},
     FCL1=231^/Z^t,""^A
     PRE1=A~$L.TO.U^A

    The DPM option allows you to pick a DPM and view the Data Definitions.  SEG allows you to be more exact and pick both a DPM and Segment, while ELE allows you to pick both a DPM and a Field.  After picking an option, you can type ? to get a pop-up window explaining the keystrokes to use to navigate the screens.

    Is it possible to harm the system with report? Should it only be done in test?

    I am under the impression that as long as we are not deleting data, or writing data to the database then it should not corrupt any data.

    There is no harm in running this report.  It is a view-only routine and does nothing more than display data.
