Records may be viewed in order of entry into the table (default order) or in ascending or descending order. When the Ascending or Descending option is selected, special symbols will precede numeric values and numbers will precede letters in ascending views while the reverse is true in descending views. It is important to note that only one field at a time my be used to define the sort (presentation) order of all the records in the view.
While the Ascending and Descending options are mutually exclusive (you can choose neither, one or the other but not both), the Group option can be applied in addition to either of the sorting options. To learn more about grouping records within a view, please refer to the Group Viewing Option section of this users manual.
