Record Type Codes

The "record type" function in the Complex Search Form (hints) allows you to filter records based on what type of registration they contain.

Enter one or more record type codes from the below table, in any order, separated by the vertical-bar character, "|".

For example, a search for b|d|D would match personal badges, devices, and combination name-and-device records.
