Using the FilterOn property of a form, I can tell if a form displays filtered data or not. How can I tell if the user has sorted the data or not; for example how can I tell if the user has clicked on one of the toolbar sort buttons?

Thanks

Examine the form's OrderBy property.

My tests indicate that your suggestion won't do the trick. For example: 1) open a form with a blank order by property, 2) use the tool bar sort button and the order by property gets a value, 3) remove the filter / sort using the menu bar or shortcut menu for the form to restore the form to its recordsource sort and the order by property does NOT get cleared; so at this point I can't tell if the form is in some user specified sort or not.

Sorry; you should examine OrderBy and OrderByOn. The most recent filter/sort is saved in OrderBy. It is in effect only when OrderByOn is true. If the user removes filter/sort OrderByOn goes false.

Thanks! I wasn't aware of the OrderByOn property.
