Sort a layout with specific alphabetic order ?

Hi everyone,

I'm also quite new to FileMaker and had to learn on my own so not quite good with Scripts and everything yet.

 

I'm working on a lexicon for a dead language and would like to be able to sort my entries according to a specific alphabetic order but can't figure out how to do it. I tried with a "Value List" but it's not working and I'm not knowledgeable enough with the "Scripts"

 

There is also a catch since the "alphabet" we are using makes a difference with capitals ("A" and "a" are not the same letter).

 

So is there a way to sort all my entries by this kind of order? :

"A, j, a, w, b, p, f, m, n, r, h, H, x, X, ..."

 

 

Thanks a lot for the help !

 

 

 

P.S. for those wondering, it's called "transliteration", which is to convert in roman letter a text that is in a different writing system, and what I'm working on is ancient Egyptian.
