It was our programming staff that did that. That is why we

That's the way it was supposed to be. However, many of the
braindead idiots who made up the "naming police" created at many
corporate and government sites ended up replacing things like
LAST_YEARS_NET_REVENUE with A0942B using logic like the following:
"A" indicates variables from the "accounting" department. The
next two digits "09" indicate the primary node in that department's
hierarchical list of variables, The following two digits are the
subnode and the "B" is a version number.
