As no fan of fixed fields, I never though I would say this.  But a
series of codes for LDR/18 would make it *so" much easier for our
programmer.  With 16 letters and 10 numbers, we are unlikely to run
out of possible codes.

We never make any application of most fixed fields.  But that is one
we could very much use.
