Sorting the equipment inventory databases: to sort records means to change the order in which the records are displayed and printed. The underlying data structure of the file remains the same.

Our application uses one-level or multi-level sort, depending on the number of fields used in the sort definition.

  • Move a mouse cursor over the Sort button to display popup message with the default ordering message (2).
