Portal sort troubles
I have a customer table, a projects table where each customer can have multiple projects, and a jobs table where each project has many jobs.
From the customer layout, I have a portal to show all related jobs, regardless of date or project, and two more portals to show future and past jobs for one selected project.
For past jobs, I am trying to sort jobs by date in descending order, but all I can get is creation order. Portal showing all jobs sorts by date any way I want. Date is definately a date field., not text.
The relationships for future and past jobs both use a global on the left side to get the selected project, and both use a "today" field to determine if appointment is in the past or future. So for past appointments, relationship includes today > Job Date.
No matter if I try to sort at relationship level or portal level, I can not get this to sort by date. The only differences between the working portal and the two that won't sort are the global field, and the Today > condition. The relationships work fine, I get exactly the records I want, but they absolutely will not sort.
Any suggestions on how to get this to work? Thanks.
As far as I know (and I'm only a newbie, but I read this the other day trying to solve my own problem) Global Fields cannot be used in sorts.
