Sequences on search returns
« on: Monday 21 March 16 12:58 GMT (UK) »
Is there a way to get the returned lists from e.g. SIG or Anniversaries query sequenced? (like by clicking the column heading?)

In particular, SIG sequenced by address would be handy and Anniversaries by date (these are what I've noticed today) but if a generalised facility was available on every column heading it would probably be helpful for research purposes.

Thanks for anything you can do,
peter.

When you use SIG or Anniversaries you can select which entries you want to see - e.g surname. The return from the search is a list of relevant entries, it would be more useful for research purposes if these could be in the sequences I suggested, and in general if any list could be sequenced by clicking the name at the top of the column.

The use of TLAs* is best avoided until you have explained (once) to what they refer! ;D

In general, the search returns from the darabases mentioned are in alphabetical order :)

.... but not always :(

and in general if any list could be sequenced by clicking the name at the top of the column.
At present I have no plans to add such a sequencer, but I'll add it to my "rainy day" project list.

Bob
