      Need a script to alphabetize a list in a field

      Post

      I'm looking for a script that will alphabetize a list of words or names in a field that is on one record.

       

      I'm using FileMaker Pro v10 on a Mac.

       

      I run a dog boarding kennel. I built a database for owners, dogs, and reservations. I want to keep track of which dogs play well together.

       

      I know how to create a dynamic list of check boxes from the names of all the dogs. I can write a script to take that list and put it in a field. However, when I do that it puts the list in the order that the check boxes were checked, not in alphabetical order. So I figured I'd write a script to put the list in alphabetical order.
