Can you give a concrete example of what other sort order you think and what result it would return?
I meant custom sort order for instance days
But my main need would be for isntance to display a pop-up menu, with sku ordered by availability rather than alphabitcally. Or a user defined custom order.
I agree Vincent. Filemaker has matured wonderfully but Value List options and dialog boxes haven't seen many improvements. Value lists should offer add'l sort options when using table data.
I'd like to see these two options in addition ot the calculation you cited.
Use relationship sort
Sort by field (ability to select any other field from that same table with [Asc/Desc options] )
