Hi Simmon,

If you base your "Value List" on a "Field" it will always be in Alphabetically order based on the first word.

AFAIK, there isn't a Script or procedure, native to FileMaker, that will allow you to do this to do a "Hard Coded" list. The way I do this is to access the values through the File - Define - Edit list, and then select all of the values in the list, Copy, and then Paste the values into a text editor (excel works too), Sort the list, Copy the sorted list, and then go back to FileMaker[color:"blue"] (Be sure you have the List in FileMaker still selected) and Paste, this will replace the current list with the alphabetized one.
