Single Codelist entry to retrieve data between a range

Problem Statement: Codelist entries are not support for range like (1,100) we need to create every entry with same values TEXT1,TEXT2,…TEXT9 and description for 1-100 with hundred entries. Which will increase the size of the codelist.

1st entry 2nd entry …… 100th entry

<CODE_LIST_XREF_ITEM>

<SENDER_ITEM>1</SENDER_ITEM>

<RECEIVER_ITEM>1</RECEIVER_ITEM>

<TEXT1>TXT1</TEXT1>

<TEXT2></TEXT2>

<TEXT3/>

<TEXT4/>

<TEXT5/>

<TEXT6/>

<TEXT7/>

<TEXT8/>

<TEXT9/>

Proposed solution:

  • We need to use below SQL command to fetch the values in between the range.

SELECT Text1 FROM Codelist WHERE Name = "Codelist" and BETWEEN lower_value AND upper_value;

  • ii) Currently we are using sender or receiver as a lookup. Now, We need add range as a new lookup parameter.

Codelist Entry 1 : If lookup values is 8 the it will pick the 1st entry. If lookup values is 111 the it will pick the 2nd entry.

<CODE_LIST_XREF_ITEM>

<SENDER_ITEM>A</SENDER_ITEM>

<RECEIVER_ITEM>A</RECEIVER_ITEM>

<Lowervalue>1</Lowervalue>

<Uppervalue>100</Uppervalue>

<TEXT1>TXT1</TEXT1>

<TEXT2></TEXT2>

<TEXT3/>

<TEXT4/>

<TEXT7/>

<TEXT8/>

<TEXT9/>

</CODE_LIST_XREF_ITEM>

Codelist Entry 2 :

<CODE_LIST_XREF_ITEM>

<SENDER_ITEM>.B</SENDER_ITEM>

<RECEIVER_ITEM>B</RECEIVER_ITEM>

<Lowervalue>1</Lowervalue>

<Uppervalue>100</Uppervalue>

<TEXT1>TXT2</TEXT1>

How will this idea be used?

Base on the above mention proposal no need to create multiple entries in the codelists. So number of entries will be less, size of the codelist will be reduced and processing time for translation to find the value in codelist will be minimized.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest, feel free to re-enter the idea in 12 months to see if priorities have shifted. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
