obsolete codes by comparing codes currently in the system with the set of codes designated by a
keyword you enter. (See the graphic below.) This designated set of codes could be, for example,

To use this function, you must know the keyword assigned to the set of codes on which you want
to base the comparison. (When you load a set of commodity codes or import code numbers, you
can print the key you assigned to the set and keep it on file.) The system uses that keyword to
retrieve the set of codes from its database.
