Is a field name starting with a number really a problem

Post

     Hi:

     I'm using FM Pro ADV 11. One of my clients has used the Dewey Decimal System in field names.  So for example 100.0 is Cash, 101.0 is cash in banks, 101.1 is cash in Bank of America.  Their list of accounts is long, and they like to change it from time to time.  Sorting it by the starting number of the field name seems simple. There is a message displayed that" it might be dificult to use a field starting with a number or a decimal" . . . . I understand the problem with calculation symbols and words reserved for calculations, but what's the problem with starting field names with a number.?
