Hi Ian,

With a Form, I have found the following is the way to lock in the Form's
sort order -

1.  Open the Form in Edit mode
2.  Right click on the form and from the dropdown choose Form...
3.  Click on the Data Tab
4.  The contents field should be pointing to your Table
5.  Click on the box to the right of the Sort field
6.  Then you can choose your sort fields, (LastName and FirstName)
7.  Click OK
8.  Close Form Properties
9.  Save the Form

This works with my H2 database.  Hopefully it is the same for your MySQL.

Hi All

I now have my new MySQL/LO Base Database up, running and fully edited from
the old one. And what a pleasure it is to work with!! This IS the way to go,

One question - It seems to have a strange way of sorting the Data as
displayed in the Form I designed and I have to select 'Sort' in the bottom
Bar and then pick 'Last Name', Ascending and 'First Name' Ascending to get
it the way I want it.

Unfortunately it does not seem to keep this Sort!! Is there a way to
"lock' this sort or to make it automatically do it when you start the

Thanks for any help.
