Using the Simple Picklist, I have selected the sort options Surname, Given name, Birth date.  It sorts by Surname and Birth date.  I had this issue using version 7.  I sent my data to Dorothy and she fix it but I don't know what she did.  My version 7 still works like a charm. It broke again when I upgraded to version 8 and stayed broken when I upgraded to version 9. Though I've got over 22k people in my database, It is more of an annoyance than anything. I know my database well enough that I can quickly select an odd name to sort on and find the person I need. I've tried the other options in the picklist but it will not give me Parker, Abel, then Parker, Charles. It gives me all the Parkers sorted by Birth date. It does not sort by surname, given name.

Do you have any name styles defined? If so look at them as a possible source of the problem.
