Sorting

Recommended Posts

Hi -

first of all, thanks for such prompt, clear support.

I've had data in FileMaker for about 6-8 months, since I moved to the Mac, but I haven't worked with it until now. So I'm here with questions.

I created two layouts, and I think I didn't deal properly with the sort when I created them.

Now I have it done the way I want, but, when I switch from layout to layout, the sort order doesnt' seem to be saved with the layout.

Is that possible to do, and how?

Thank you-

Marion

Via a carthesian selfjoin, could each layout have it's own sortorder like the tabs facilitate in this template:

The sort order is NOT saved with the layout. A layout has no sort property. You probably want to script this, e.g.;)

Go to Layout A

Sort Records [ Restore ]

In version 10, you can trigger a script to run on layout load.
