It would appear your best option would be to use a numeric suffix, not
prefix. Not to throw a stone at what you're trying to do, but numeric
prefixes are rarely a good idea, which is why most languages require that
variables start with an alphabetic character.
If you're deeply entrenched in the application, that is, you have hundreds
of fields that are named this way prior to the SB+ upgrade, the news isn't
good. You will need to give some thought to writing some conversion
utilities to fix the field definitions. If I can be of any assistance,
please feel free to email me directly.
