Descriptor Key

I am creating a new descriptor key set and would like to have any points that do not have a current code come in on layer Sort Me.  Does anyone know how to set up the key to do this?

I've created a point group to catch points that do not have a code in the descriptor list (define it by excluding points  matching with a list of all the descriptors). If all points have valid descriptions then this group should be empty.

Edit: You can then set a point style override for this group to display the points on the layer you want.

You can set the default layer for points here.  Any points that don't match one of the Description Keys should end up with the default layer and styles.
