Sorting in Project Explorer

Recommended Posts

I normally have the people in my tree listed in order of Surname Soundex.



But recently it rather than going A through to Z. It goes backwards.



When I tried getting it in order of Given Name soundex it appears in a completely random order. Like J,D,J,A,D,H,W

Is the collate sequence correct?

Preferences / Current Project Options / Other / Collate sequence

 

For me, the default GENERAL is always correct but for you, it might be different.

 

I have no idea what might break the sort order other than the collate sequence. There might be some control that's not working correctly. If that's the case, you might try running the installer and selecting [Repair].

I agree with Jim to first check your Collate sequence, as well as be sure you have done the maintenance routines of Optimize / VFI / Optimize.

 

However, there remains a bug in the Soundex sorting in both the Picklists and Project Explorer in the final version of TMG. That bug is listed in my web page of remaining TMG bugs. See the detailed description of that unexpected behavior here:

Soundex sorting does not group as implied by the title of the sort

 

Hope this gives you ideas,
