You're correct, sort doesn't work in Find Mode - and how can it?
There are no records to sort.
Make sure you're in Browse mode before sorting. And no, the fields
you sort on don't need to be on the current layout
You are missing the
script step before the Sort step.
I added a Pause/Resume Script [indefinitely] & Perform Find steps. And it sorts perfectly.
You should be getting the same result IF you are sorting on the same fields and in the same order.
Are you certain that both sorts are using the same (ascending/descending) sort process?
You do not need to have the fields you are sorting by on the layout, but I would put the fields on the layout temporarily so you can test the script to see what the values in the field actually are. Then you can determine what is actually happening with the sort.
What is the script step Go to Object for? Seems unnecessary, but may be a clue as to what is different
