This option will create an ASCII file which will contain patient demographic and admission data. It will create a file based on station number as part of the name. The fortmat for the file name is: "VA"_station number_".TXT". Therefore, if this were run at Albany NY, which has a station number of 500, the file name assigned would be: VA500.TXT. This is a deliminated file, and will be used by the vendor for seeding their data base.
