Programming Code That Uses Type Codes
There are two ways to determine if type codes are being used with the data: 1) by inspecting the data definition or 2) by inspecting the programming code. Sometimes, when the term "type" is not used, it is hard to identify type codes in the data definition. You can then look at the programming code. Code structured as it is in the following diagram indicates type code processing.
