To add a new item to a code list, simply type a label for the item in the text box at the bottom of the code list editor and press Enter.
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:
Click the Details tab of the code list editor.
Enter a name, label, and description as appropriate.
