Not unless you plan to replace the entire file with your back up and then your changes to the defined fields are lost.
Most developers use a naming convention for their fields such that an alphabetical sort puts the fields into the optimum order for working with them.
Example: I like to see the primary key listed first, followed by a group of all foreign key fields.
So I start the name of my Primary key with: "__pk" and foreign key fields with "_fk". The underscores insure that these are listed first when sorting alphabetically and the double underscore puts the pk field ahead of the fk's.
Thanks Phil. I do use prefixes to keep a certain order. So, it's not a total nightmare. But, I just did a bunch of housekeeping cleaning up this file. I was hoping for an easy fix or prevention. Live and learn! Thanks again.
