Consistency is a blessing. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: I have my own names for common things that go back almost 20 years...they are in finger memory and great for copy/pasting. You could reasonably argue that the names a programmer uses for common items become a fingerprint of sorts.

I get the Fortran background of 'i','j', and 'k' but have always disliked single character variable names since we're now (since the '80s) allowed to be a bit more descriptive...so I use a lot of 2 letter names instead! Laugh | :laugh: Like you said though, whatever works! Smile | :)

BTW, where UI items are concerned, it irritates me to see developers who are content with Textbox1, Textbox2, etc. Dead | X|
