Base code

Enter the worker's compensation code; this base code will be used in conjunction with a state code in Worker's Compensation Code Maintenance.

Note: Because many users prefer alphabetic or combination alpha and numeric coding, this code is not a numeric-only field. Because of this, the code left-justifies when entered. Users preferring a strictly numeric coding scheme should be advised to use leading zeros when adding codes in order to produce desired sort results on screens and reports. Without leading zeros, 1, 10, and 100 will appear before 2, 20, and 200. Instead, codes should be set up 001, 002, and so forth.
