So, the SIC Code appeared as an issue early on dealing with EU folks, but I never found anything other than some postings in the old wiki. I am in the US and while Public companies sometimes deal with SIC, the standard is NAICS. I want to change the name of the "SIC Code" to NAICS Code. A bit of background is that NAICS replaced SIC in 1997 for the US, Canada, and Mexico and is the general type of trade like a carpenter. It has 6 digits. I know the "SIC Code" field is set to 8 digits. Not a big deal, but would be GREAT to be able to change the length of the field as well! The PSC is a federal supply code. The PSC is a hierarchy set up by the US government. All of our Membership are associated in the trades industries. I can set that up as a custom field. I would also like to be able to search by NAICS if I can change the name of the field. Thanks!

  • Maybe I'm missing the point, but why not just ignore SIC and create a searchable custom field for NAICS?

  • Primarily for the Look and Feel and the amount of data to pre-populate would be astronomical. Thanks though for input! Oct 13, 2022 at 20:41

You could do 'word replacements' under 'customize data and screens'.
