Naming Convention : lists vs properties

Hi, in addition to Anapedia Naming Conventions, which you should apply, I used the following practices or my models :

  • Lists : all names in plural. 
  • Properties of list : singular.

Example of lists :

  • Products Families
  • Products
  • Countries
  • Customers Types
  • Customers

Example of properties : in the products list : the property is named Product Familly, singular in the customers list,the properties are names Country, singular, and customer type, singular. The advantage of that is that when I use LOOKUP or SUM, it is easy to remember how I spelled the properties (singar) and the lists (plural). I can write the formula by heart without having to exit the module, open the list and click on the relevant property. It saves a lot of time Kind regards. Michel.
