Apologies for the rather cryptic '14'. I hope that my second email,
"[duxhelp] Roman numerals in British code - correction" explaining that
14 went to 'viv' in DBT, made things clearer. I had assumed that as viv
is a female name that was the problem but I had not, at that time,
realised the peculiarity that was going on.

David,

That is, it doesn't work with "xiv"?

Why wouldn't that be surprising?

Or am I misunderstanding you?  Do you mean it won't handle
fourteen-character numerals?

I have just been trying out roman numerals in British code. 

 

This is much better and will save time so thank you. Not surprisingly it
does not cope with 14 and I cannot think that there will be a way round
that
problem.
