We run Crystal Reports against our Goldmine DB. I see in some queries CONTSUPP.RECTYPE='P'
Can some one please explain what this means and are there other values besides 'P'.

We have a report that contains...

It would be a guess, because I do not know the database architexture as it ties in with the front end, but because it is a single character this would indicate a flag of some sort.  I would suggest that you talk to your GoldMine Administrator as there is a workflow frontend that will tell you exactly what the field is used for.

Based on looking up GoldMine for that table here is the following.
 Automated Process attached event
 Extended profile header
 Linked document
 Organizational chart
 Profile record/extended profile record
 Referral record
The RECTYPE value H can be linked to records with the RECTYPE value P. Assigning extended information settings to a profile (assigned to a tab, or extended fields used) creates an H record type to store the settings. The profile record stores a character string in the Phone field that matches the H record’s AccountNo field.

There are additional information about GoldMine tables and description at this link:

Hope this helps.

Thank you wykabryan....I sort of inherited this from someone who left the company so I am the GM admin. You mentioned a workflow front end.  That sounds interesting can you tell me how I can get into that?
