I have a large Access database with numerous tables, forms, queries etc.  There are a few of these objects that I modify all of the time and prefixing them with a _ (to ensure that they are at the top of my lists), would make life easier.  

Whilst I appreciate that this isn't the normal naming convention,  I was wondering if it could have any adverse effects?
