Description

The Answer Class SSMT content category can be used to assist in managing the classifications or categories in the Answer dictionary. The classes in the Answer dictionary are also easily manually managed and edited because the dictionary itself as delivered is not terribly complex and pretty easy to manage.

The Code and Mnemonic values for this category are not viewable or accessible via the Answer dictionary; only via SSMT or SQL query.

Stored Procedures used:

  • Loading data: ImpGetAnswerClassDE
  • Extracting data: ImpSetAnswerClassDE
