Hi :)
Pretty much any database should be able to sort on any of the
columns/fields.  Even spreadsheets allow it.  Most even allow sorting on
multiple columns/fields at the same time.

Of course if you have a proper database you can use Sql statements or use
the Query gui to set-up specific searches and then modify them.  Another
way might be to set-up a form with drop-downs for each field so that weeu's
(wide eyed end users) can select their own search parameters.

Errr, if you are doing this for a website then the form might be in html or
something like that for the front-end and then MySql or something for the
back-end.  Errr, i specify MySql for that rather than giving alternatives
because most hosting companies still seem to have only MySql as an option
even though a LOT of people would prefer to have choices such as Postgresql
or MariaDb or lighter faster ones for smaller databases.  This is also
where Base really scores because it can connect to a MySql/MariaDb,
Postgresql or whatever so that your local users can update the back-end.
So people visiting the website wouldn't be using Base and wouldn't have
access to the updating capability.  In other words different people using
different tools to access the same data in different ways for different
purposes.  The choice is largely yours!

Tom :)
