Alphabetize a list

Recommended Posts

Hi

Can someone clue me in as to alphabetizing a list in FM ina single field. The list is seperated by returns and may contain multiple words per line.

This would be the contents of an example field:

Fred

Abby & Joe

2Happy ToCare

Ancient Aztec Ruins are amazing

Lettuce Pray

Thanks in advance!

DO NOT DOUBLE POST!

I have responded to your Post in the "Value List" Topic area, this was after I moved it from the General Question Area.

So, go with that one and Delete this one.

If you want to know more about what a double post is, and why it is frowned upon to do it, just do a search for my name and Double + Post and you will see what it is all about.

All the Best
