Title

multiple layouts requiring a different sort order for each

Post

Hi there...beginner/intermediate user in need of assistance. FM 6.0v2 on XP Pro SP3.

Can each layout within one file have its own sort order? Two layouts (used for reports) are sorted by year, month, week of year, date, item code. But I have one layout (also for reporting) that needs to be main operator, year, month, week of year, date, item code. There is only one layout containing the data needed for all reports.

My boss set this up a long time ago, as you can see by the FM version LOL. I am in the process of revising a cloned file to accomodate the needs of other departments (billing, inventory, etc.). Because there will be several users that have no FM training, I need buttons and scripts to do the work.

Any help would be appreciated! TIA
