69 Understand User Defined Codes

This chapter contains the topic:

Many fields throughout the JD Edwards World systems accept only user defined codes. When you enter an invoice, for example, you must enter a user defined code to specify its current payment status. The system does not accept values that are not defined in a user defined list.

Each user defined code is either soft-coded or hard-coded. You can customize any soft-coded user defined code to accommodate your specific business needs. You can set up additional codes that are soft-coded as well. You cannot customize a user defined code that is hard-coded.

User defined code types are identified by the system code and the user defined code list. For example, 00/DT represents system 00 and user defined code list DT (document types).

Information about user defined codes is stored in the User Defined Codes table (F0005).

69.1 Elements of a User Defined Code Form

The User Defined Code Revisions form shows the various codes that are assigned to a specific user defined code, such as ledger types (09/LT).
