    FMP 12 Sort by Field Name

    DavidJondreau

      What is the Sort Records by Field[] script step supposed to accomplish in FMP12?

       

      I've looked at it up and down, but can't make heads or tails of what benefit it has over the regular Sort[] script step.

          Hello, David. This is a script step which can bring up the Specify Field dialog on setup. If you don't choose a field, it acts on the ACTIVE field when the script is run.

           

          The regular sort sets up multiple fields if desired. This is just one field, but the ability to NOT specify a field, makes it flexible to use any field.

           

          You can choose ascending, descending (or value list). Keep in mind your active field if not based on value list, would sort oddly.
