Attributes Code List Code Table

The Attribute Code List code table allows you to specify specific values for name attributes that users can use instead of having to type information manually. This is especially useful in ensuring accuracy in name attributes. With a specific list of values to choose from, users will not be able to use different terms for the same value. This code table populates drop-down lists that can be found in the designated snap-ins of the following session types:

Session Snap-In List
