That worked.  Thank you Jared!
But. . . how do you figure out what are the valid prefixes are? I
mistakenly assumed they would be the same as what appears in the  Admin
Authorized values Category pulldown menu.
The other ones I have used form there, ccode and suppress, worked.  Why not
I am not the technical half of our team so I just try to find patterns
(even when they don't exist).
