Sorting names after finding/replacing
Posted by: Matthew Bielawa Date: November 23, 1999 at 08:51:12

Hello All!
I recently used the search and replace feature to change many names in my project (v. 3.0). I changed both first and last names of hundreds of people.

That worked o.k. I can now see the new names when I pull anyone up. HOWEVER, whenever I sort these names, either in the FIND box or any other sorting, these names are sorted by their old spelling---even though the new spelling appears.

Is there a way I can use sorting by the new spelling?

Thanks!
Matthew
