This is the spreadsheet that allows the loading or editing of Charge codes into the Charge Code dictionary via the SSMT tool. Below are the descriptions of each column based on 11.0.1


Stored Procedures used:

  • Extraction: ImpGetChargeCodes
  • Loading: ImpSetChargeCode

Column Listings:

  • EntryCode - This is the charge code that the billing system will expect to receive in the interface. When exporting, this column will have an 'X' value attached as the first character. This value will be stripped when reloading, so do not worry about removing it from the spreadsheet. The value will appear as anticipated in the application. If loading new values, the 'X' does not need to be manually added. It is only added when exporting (reason unknown).
