Can we start the tag name with numeric digits in Vijeo Citect.

Using a number as the first digit of a tag is not a good engineering practice. Tags starting with numbers are not supported
by many modern programming languages and they are not allowed in the industrial control systems standard IEC 1131-3.
This is because it creates confusion when tags are used in complex expressions. This was not a problem with older simpler
systems when you could only get the value of a tag.
 
However you can use the following parameter to do so:
 
[General]TagStartDigit=1
 
Allows you to use tags that have a number as the first digit.
