Option 1 - Search Industry
Scroll through the list of industries and select the one that is most closely related to the product you are coding. You may select more than one industry by holding down the CTRL key as you make your selections. When you're ready, click the NEXT button. The drop down lists on the next screen will be limited to those that match the Industry you entered.
Multiple adjacent industries may be selected by holding the mouse down and dragging it over industries or by holding down the SHIFT key while using the arrows to select them.
Non-adjacent industries may be selected by holding down the CTRL while clicking on the industries using the mouse.
Option 2 - Search Partial Code
To search on a partial code, you must enter a valid industry code and any other parts of the product code in the appropriate fields. Click NEXT. Your choices for the remaining fields will be limited to those that match the industry code and any other field(s) you entered.
Option 3 - Search Product Name
This is the quickest way to find a Product Code.
Enter a word from the product name or a keyword associated with the product name.
For example, if you are coding swordfish you can enter 'sword' 'fish', or 'swordfish.' If you are coding bottled spring water you can enter 'spring' or 'water.' If you enter multiple words, they must be found in the product name or description in the same order you entered them. It's usually best to search on one keyword at a time.
Click NEXT. On the next screen, all industries with a product or products that contain entries with the word you specified will be listed. Click on the drop down list of Product Names for the Industry or Industries that match the product you are coding.
Option 4 - Verify Product Code
If you have a product code, and want to know if it is still a valid code or if you are not sure what product it represents, you can enter the code in the appropriate fields. Click NEXT. If the product code is valid, the name of the product will appear on the next screen.
The Application returns the primary product for the product code entered. There may be secondary products with this product code. To view primary and secondary products for this product code, use Option 2.
