  • Hi Mark,

    Sorry for our delay on getting back to you on this one.

    You can definitely use multiple sets of codes on one job, however when you group the job you can only select one of the codes to do the grouping with.
    The reports produced are then based on that particular grouping.

    Unforutntely this means you would need to produce separate groupings\reports of each set of codes.
