Broken SORT function in table view with IWP
In conducting testing under IWP, I discovered that a routine SORT in table view does not work right. A search pulled up this description of the problem, which seems accurate:
However, the proposed workaround involves a scripted SORT. Ours is based upon the "built-in" sorting feature of clicking on column headers/fieldnames in table view. The IWP documentation says:
"In Table View, records can be sorted in ascending or descending order by clicking the column heading (the field name)."
Yet it does not seem to work, as described in the above-referenced thread. Is this a known limitation of IWP, despite the wording above? Is a scripted SORT the only way to go?
