Attributes are made of two codes, the Attribute Type is a one or two letter code to represent the group of Attributes you are creating. For example , the Attribute Type P could represent the Product the company sells, and many Attributes Codes could be set up within this defining the products such as books, videos or DVD's.
Attributes can be added to :
To Add a New Attribute Type and Codes
Multiple Attribute codes and Subsections
In cases where there are potentially too many attributes codes to be listed clearly on a Questionnaire or there are many subsections to an attribute code, attribute codes can be set up using a main heading and then multiple codes seperated by a colon, for example in the Attribute Type PC (product code) the attribute code BOOKS could be the main category and BOOKS:001, BOOKS:002 etc set up to represent different subcategories of books. This can go even further if required to BOOKS:001:01 to represent a further subcategory.
If the attribute code list is very long, to find a particular attribute easily, click on the button to only show the heading codes.
If changes are made to the Attribute database, when the Attribute Type window is closed down the system will run an Attribute Policeman program to check the system, this may take a few minutes.This can also be done by clicking on the Policeman button .
