Institute user can select either or both title or code. For example, Gender as defined in Gender validation table will have Title as Male and Code as M. While exporting the application and if Male is selected for the Gender field, the export will have Male and M both if Title and Code both are selected. When All option is selected, two options will appear to exclude Codes and to exclude Titles.
