Is there an easy way to document ANSI 837 structure to database structure?

I have a hierarchical database structure which was constructed from your tools. What would be useful is a mapping that describes/translates the 5010 nomenclature such as Loop 1000A - NM103 to the DB table/field name such as CLAIMS.PATIENT_NAME_LASTNAME.

My reason for needing this is that when I need to research a particular field in the database, what it contains, how/why and with what it gets populated, I need to identify what I am looking for using the common terminology.

Is there any way to generate this sort of map/translation?
