    Date Sorting

    Asked by PPDevents on January 05, 2012 at 10:55 AM

    I have a problem with sorting by date.  It will sort correctly by date the form was submitted.  However, I also have a field for sorting by date an event will take place.  You will see in the screen shot that they are sorted incorrectly: Jan, Mar, Jan, ...   Also, it does not take the year into account; so Dec 2011 will sort right in with the 2012 events.

    Any ideas for fixing this?

    Something appears to be amiss with the sorting feature of that form. Compare the following screen shots:

    When I went into your submission records and tried to sort the date, a shruken sort box popped up:

    Normally, the box should look like this:

    Is the first box what you are seeing as well or is this just occurring on my end?

    Thanks for the reply.  My box looks like the second one pictured: Sort Ascending, Sort Descending, Columns.
