Demonstration: Using the Set action (continued)

Next, try using the set action to change an item in the target. To do so, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the arrow on the target PIDgrp segment to expand it. Then, expand the PID segment in the same way.

  4. Verify that both the graphical editor and action list look like the following. Note that the action that copies the source PIDgrp to the target PIDgrp must precede the action hardcoding the PatientIDExternalID field. Otherwise, since the transformation's actions execute in top to bottom order, the assignment would be overwritten.
