Hi Ian,

There is another way -

1.  After opening your Form in design mode, click on View | Toolbars | and
make sure Form Design is ticked
2.  On that toolbar, click on Form Navigator (5th from left on my toolbar -
it's the one with the 4 point star on it)
3.  Right click on your Form name (probably the 2nd item from the top)
4.  Choose Properties
5.  Continue from point 3 on my first reply

If that doesn't work, then someone who uses Forms with MySQL may be able to
help you.

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.

Just checked on my OLD Base / HSQL Database and there is NO "Form" option
there either - so I guess this is an option only with your H2 engine (??)
