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.

Thanks for your reply - This is exactly what I was looking for!!


I open the Form in Edit Mode and Right-Click on it and there is NO "Form" in the options that come up!!

My LO is version (Build ID: 5b93205) and MySQL is 5.1

thanks anyway

It seems where you right-click on the form is important. If I click anywhere but the top of the form, then I do not get the "Form" option. However, if I click near the top edge, I do get the "Form" option. Don't know why this is, unless it has something to do with the beginning of data. There was something I read about the form being made up of "paragraphs", so maybe you need to click near the beginning of the first "paragraph" to get outside it. Otherwise, you get the paragraph context menu for the right-click. If you don't have the form broken up into paragraphs (I don't), then you have one paragraph.
Hope this helps.
