When is this a problem?
Naming conventions should be used for all subset lists.
Why is this a problem?
Subset lists that do not use naming conventions can cause confusion. Without proper naming conventions, it can be difficult to determine which list the subset belongs to. This becomes more important when using the subset during the creation of a module.
How to correct:
Use these guidelines when developing a naming convention for subsets:
- A prefix to indicate that a list is a subset of a larger list.
- The name of the list where the subset is defined.
- A colon followed by a brief description of the subset.
