Description. The sub business block codes will be automatically generated if Active (Y). If Auto Assign Sub Block Codes is Inactive (N), then the user will need to manually enter the sub business block code. When Inactive (N), then the regular Tour Series is disabled and only Custom Tour Series is active. When Auto Assign Sub Block Codes is used in conjunction with the Blocks>Default Block Code Template each sub block created generates a warning that a block with that particular Block Code already exists, then asks if you wish to proceed. If you wish to avoid creating multiple blocks and sub blocks with the same Block Code, set the application parameter Blocks>Unique Block Code to Y to form a unique variation of the Default Block Code Template. The application parameter Blocks>Enforce Block Code Length set to Y, used in conjunction with the Default Block Code Template, controls the length of each block code variation generated from the manual entry of the block code based on the default. The length will be evaluated against the template length and only entries of the same length as the template are deemed valid.
