Application Codes

All of the simple codes (used in drop downs and other locations) are kept in a single Codes grid for easy reference and update.  To edit a Code record, click on the Codes icon within the Data Grids tab of the ribbon menu.

By default the Codes grid is itemized for ease of use; click on a [+] icon from the left side to expand each category and double-click on a record to edit it.
