Sorting on Values in Lookup RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Project 2003 the Gantt view sorts on the Value List and, if you enter a description for each value, on the alphanumeric order of those descriptions.  So, if you want Key Dates at the top of the Gantt view, you can prefix the Description with "01  Key Dates" and it goes to the top.  In Project 2010 and onwards, it appears that the sorting is done only referencing the Value, hence Key Dates appears after anything that is higher up the alphabet than it.  Has anyone come across this and, if so, do you have any advice??

  • Invisiblename,

    Sorry, you lost me. A screen shot or detailed description of exactly what you have in your value list would help tremendously.

    With value lists there are two types of sorting, one for how the value list is presented and the other is a normal view sort of whatever fields are selected for the sort. In the former, the value list is sorted by value, not by description (Project 2003)
