    ​I did find this, but i was hoping to get a list of all of our entities, rather than have to check one by one... Thanks! Laura

    How to Find the Object Type Code for Any Entity - PowerObjects
    Each entity in the system will have an Object type code. For simplicity of understanding, think of it as a numbering system for all the entities, regardless if they are out of the box or custom. As a CRM Expert, you might encounter a situation where you will need to identify the Object Type code for an entity.

    Hello,
    You can use XrmToolbox and Metadata Browser plugin of it to get that data.

    You also could query the SQL database:
    SELECT distinct [Name],
    [ObjectTypeCode]
    FROM [yourCRMdatabase].MetadataSchema.Entity order by Name
