I need a definition for Alpha Numeric fields

I need a definition for Alpha Numeric fields

I am trying to find a definition for Alpha Numeric fields that has been accepted by one or more data standards organizations.

RE: I need a definition for Alpha Numeric fields

If you mean standard reference designations such as K for relays and such, get a copy of ANSI Y32.2-1975(IEEE Std 315-1975 & CSA Z99-1975) from Global Engineering Documents http://global.ihs.com/. It cost about $72 USD.

It sounds like you are doing computer programming. If you are in the Windows world, Microsoft publishes a list of recommended variable names through their TechNet subscription program. They may offer it through other channels also. You can also check the Appendix of a number of major programming books, especially books on Access programming and sometimes C++.

Good Luck,
