Individual list alphabetizes by middle name
Posted by: George VanOstrand (ID *****9108) Date: February 04, 2011 at 08:55:26

Since changing computers and updating from XP to Windows 7, all my entries in my paf program (version recorded in the individual list alphabetically by the middle name or initial instead of the last name. George/Ward/VanOstrand is alphabetized as Ward, George VanOstrand
I entered the paf program and data into Windows 7 by downloading from an external hard drive used as a backup. The program seems to be working as usual except for this new problem.
I have tried retyping entries,even though they are correctly entered, and this makes no difference. I cannot find access to any adjustment to the individual list that affects the entries.
Hope you have some ideas about a fix.
