Can anyone else confirm that the Unicode sorting trick we have used with BOM charcters for value lists no longer works in FMP13??
Seems to not work for me today, but then again that might be the whole reason!
I just tested the Virtual Value List module, which uses BOM prefixes for value list sorting, and it's working fine in FileMaker 13.
CLEARLY a day when I am doing something stupid that I cant see....
Driver error then.
Yes.... checked both of those. Looks like it was some file corruption in the end. An ExecuteSQL staement was giving the right answer - but not the valuelist when sorted by Unicode.
Very interesting question ... if only I knew what you are talking about!
I know Unicode, I know BOM I know value lists and sorting, fm2 thru 13 ...
But what is the Unicode BOM sorting trick?
And it is a solution to what problem?
I guess I just wasn't around when it was being an issue ;-)
The BOM technique we're discussing is described on Soliant's blog.
