Re-Code has a sub-option to replace alphabetic codes with numeric equivalents, as defined in the
Codes Table (see § Point Codes).

For example, choosing Re-Note and leaving the box blank is a request to erase the Notes for all currently filtered points.

24 in the box is a request to set the Codes for all currently filtered points to
