I am getting ready to move our organization to CiviCRM. We have many values that are "codes" that show in our current system via lookup tables.
For instance, the value in the database for a chapter might be "SC" whereas what is displayed is "Some Chapter"
We anticipate that this would be the "Some Chapter" group in CiviCMS but that it would also be used as grouping in reports.
So, as I move our info, is it better to retain the "SC" code, or should I convert them to "Some Chapter" as I do the export?
