SCRAMBLED UP DATES - ADDENDUM
"Sounds like you are viewing your layout while in table view. In table view, unless you disable the feature, clicking a column heading sorts the records in ascending order on the first click and in descending order on the second.
If you want to see your records displayed in a particular order you can either click a column heading (In table view only), or select Sort from the Records menu."
I tried what PhilModJunk recommended and this what I got (see attached) the ID and dates are still "jumboed-up"
I'm confused, sorry for being so "dense".
I'm viewing my records in "Browse" mode, I go to sort and clicked either "Current Table" or "Current Layout" and "date" is the only "Sort Order" selected. I add "evening ID" to the "Sort Order" (on either "Current Table" or "Current Layout") and still nothing changes.
