There's a special sort order option you can specify to sort the records in the same order as the values are listed in a custom values value list--which is the type of value list you have here.
- Select Sort Records from the records menu
- Add your priority field to the sort order and click it to highlight it.
- Select "Custom Order based on value list" and select your value list by name from the drop down.
Phil I am extremely grateful. A perfect solution. Thank you so much for taking the time.
