If you like you can also choose the value of the code; otherwise, the value will be automatically assigned and incremented.

Build Hierarchical Code Lists

Code lists can contain multiple levels of items. For example, a code list with locations might contains several levels: continent, countries, and cities.

To move an item down one level, right clik the item and select Move right. This will make the item a child of the item above it.

To move an item up a level, right click the item and select Move left. This will make the item a sibling of its former parent.

Label a Code List

To give a name, label, and description to a code list:

  1. Click the Details tab of the code list editor.
  2. Enter a name, label, and description as appropriate.
