A class identifies a user-defined group of data elements with homogeneous characteristics. Typical classes of data can be quantities, prices, client code, totals, or currency flag. Each data element can be cataloged as a member of a class.

Classes are grouped into sets called Super Classes. The set of Super Classes is as follows:

Note: The Super Class Other is used for new user classes that might not fall into any of the previous Super Classes. Conversely, the Super Class None is used for classes that do not belong to a SuperClass.
