Setting default sort order for a database or view

Last updated: 6 Feb 1999

In v97, you can set default sort settings for a database in FILE / USER SETUP / APPROACH PREFERENCES / ORDER menu item. Don't forget to click on 'Save Default' after you have set up your desired sort order.

In v3.0*, you can set the default sort order in the TOOLS / PREFERENCES menu.

If you want to have a default order for a particular report then:

  1. create a Name Find/Sort
  2. in the FORM / FORM PROPERTIES / MACROS select the macro name in the 'on switch to..." pull down list

In v 2.1, you can't set a default sort order. A work around is described in article 'Saving records in their sort order' in this FAQ.
