    Unanswered: Sort radio buttons?

    On several layouts for a client database, I've used radio buttons based on values in a field, and now the client wants them to appear in an order she considers logical, rather than alphabetically.

    Is there any way to do this without using a second field for sorting? I can create a sort field to get the values into the order I want them, but we don't want the sort field to appear on the layout with the radio button and text.

    Hmm, I suppose I could make the number the first field and place a bar the same colour as the background over the top of it...

    Any other ideas?

    Question Re: Sort radio buttons?

    Could to elaborate? or provide a 6 field sample (3 text fields and 3 radio button fields)? I can't quite picture what your getting at. Are you dealing with text or numbers?

    Re: Sort radio buttons?

    You could manipulate the radio names from:

    doctor
    nurse
    lawer

    to

    1 doctor
    2 nurse
    3 lawer

    you'll have to replace history but the sort will work.

    (works unless you have more than 9 values
    as 10 shows up next to 1 on a text sort.)
