Use the DATE OF INACTIVATION field (.03) to exclude the reason from the list presented to the users. This file is defined by the patch MAG*3*93.
.01reason(+)0;1FREE TEXTBThis field stores a valid reason/justification for action(s).
.02type(+)0;2FREE TEXTThis field indicates actions that this reason is applicable to. Actions are represented by the concatenation of the following characters: C - Copy image D - Delete image P - Print image S - Change image status For example, if a reason is applicable for copying and printing, then the value of this field should be "CP".
.03date of inactivation0;3DATE-TIMEIf this field is not empty and the stored date is no later than today's date, then this record is excluded from the list of reasons presented to the user (e.g. by the GUI application). Use this field to exclude records from selection without deleting them. This is especially important if inactive records are pointed to by records of other files.
.04code(+)0;4FREE TEXTThis field stores the code that uniquely identifies the reason. You must not modify value of this field unless you are instructed to do so by the VistA support personnel or Imaging software developers. "Standard" reasons (i.e. those distributed with the Imaging software) have numeric codes. Codes of "local" reasons created by the users at the sites consist from record IENs preceded by letter L (e.g. "L12"). When a new record is created, this field is automatically pre-populated with a "local" code.
1description1;0WORD-PROCESSINGThis field stores an optional explanation for the reason. The text can be presented to the user by the GUI application as a context sensitive help.
