Title

Sorting

Post

I am finding the sorting to be somewhat limiting. I would like to create a dynamic way of sorting a layout the has several sub-summary parts. Unfortunately, FM's script step is hard coded; I can't use variables to specify an order. FM seems to do a pretty good job at allowing variables to specify step options, but sorting and also finding doesn't seem to be one of them.

So then I tried Applescript, but no matter what I try in building a fields list, applescript and FM don't like it. The problem is trying to get the "field" specifier into the list with each field name. It sounds doable, but, alas, no luck.

Has anybody been able to build a field list that the sort by statement likes?

Thanks,

Peter...
