The codes table is a repository for storing user-defined values that you wish to localize. Enabled for localization, codes leverage the record tag localization utility and may be used for localizing lists of codes or status values. It offers an alternative to defining localized user-defined global lists without the difficulties of having to hardcode and to maintain the values inside the global list definition record.

To access codes, click
Tailoring > Codes.

Codes are comprised of the following fields:

  • Type: a name by which to classify a set of values.
  • Value: a value to be localized.
  • Sort Order: a number indicating the sort order of this value.
