    a value list is automatically sorted alphabetically normally (if based in a text field)

    Accepted Solution

    when you make the value list you can set it so it grabs the values from a field in a(nother) table. You can also set it so it grabs only related values and when the valuelist is built up out of field values you can tell Filemaker in the same dialog box to sort it.

    in this case, if nothing is specified in the list, it will follow the relationship sorting order if any.
