Sorting records descending

idiotidiot Member Posts: 651
Hi

I have a problem with sorting records on a list form in descending manner.
Tried Ascending (false) but the cursor always goes to the oldest record which is now at the bottom of the list.
Is there any way to force the cursor to remain at the 1st record (latest record) at the top of the list form?

    Set the sorting and then do FIND('-') or FINDFIRST (it depends on what you are doing after that...).

    Yes, the key you selected will show you all Sales Orders day by day and separate them by the location.
    If all sales person are using the same No. Series then a key like "Document Type","Document Date" will work. If not you also have to generate creation time of the document and expand your key by "Creation Time".

    Don't forget to filter on "Document Type".

    Yes, there is a way, but it's very complex. I wouldn't suggest to use this way in your case. It's much easier and won't waste as much resources when you just insert a new key.

    You will have to base your Sales Order List on a temporary table and do the sorting on your own. That's really hard stuff.

    that is only a way but even if you don't want to create only a key then this will be really so hard stuff to do.
