I'm attempting to get the sort order of shared documents to sort alphabetically in ascending manner by default, rather than descending.  Users can sort it manually, but ...

Anyway, this is is SharePoint 2003.  I'm trying to make this a site wide setting.

Hello,

if you have the appropriate permissions, you can change the view.
 view
Click the View dropdown at the right hand side of the title bar for the document library and select "Modify this View". Scroll down to the Sort section and then choose the Name field in the field drop-down and set the required sort order.

 sort
Save the view and the sort order will be applied for all users.

cheers, teylyn
