When code prefixes are used, sub-board internal codes will be constructed from a combination of the prefix and the specified code suffix for each sub-board. \\ \\ Code prefixes may contain up to 8 legal filename characters. \\ \\ Code prefixes should be unique among the message groups on the system. \\ \\ Changing a group'​s code prefix implicitly changes all the internal codes of the sub-boards within the group, so change this value with caution. ​
