Set up a very simple script with your Sort order, then set it as a Script Trigger OnLayoutEnter via the Layout Setup menu.
Done that and it works fine --thank you
is there a way to make the script go to the last record at the bottom of the screen ready to enter the next new record ?
Is this a layout that contains a portal, or is this a sorted report layout?
If its a portal, add the script steps:
Go To Portal Row [last] and select the field you want to go to with Go to Field, or name the field and use Go to Object. You may also be able to use
New portal row.
Keep in mind, everytime you open that layout you will create a new record
Go to Record/Request/Page [Last]
Can take you to the last record if you are NOT dealing with a portal.
