Attached is the Prime 3.1 file.

The same trick works in Prime 4.

Does not work for Prime 4.0 - ok for mathcad 15

It's possible to use special characters in variables by first putting them in quotes, then deleting the quotes.  However, I don't think this trick works to get a variable starting with a number.  I just tried in P3.1 and it didn't work.  Perhaps P4.0, but I doubt it.

No it  does not work unfortunately.

The following special characters look like 3's and are accepted as the first character of a variable (quotes trick needed): З Ӡ Ʒ ʒ

I'm sure it's not what you were looking for, but the best work-around I could find.

Looks ok! - is there and ansi code I can use to generate this ?

Re: I want to create a variable with number in front

The first is:

U+0417 З Cyrillic Capital Letter Ze

However, it does not have a keystroke (Alt+Numpad) shortcut.

 

The others are similar.

 

I think the easiest thing to do is copy the character to your clipboard and paste as necessary.

Paste results in ?  not 3.

First type quotation marks, then paste the З, then delete the quotation mark.

After that, I'd copy the variable name and paste it where needed in equations.

 

I also like Luke's solution.  I was unaware of ALT+0173.
