Sharepoint 2010 - Data Connection not sorting results

Posted on 2012-04-02
Last Modified: 2012-04-14
I have defined several data connections to lists and bound them to Infopath drop down boxes. The data connections are set to sort ascending but for some reason are not sorting. None of the dropdowns are sorting. Anybody seen this before?

Thanks. SB

Thank you for the help but as I mentioned I have set those data connections  to sort but they are not sorting.

The lists were fairly small and dont change so I went in and rebuilt them, sorting them as I did. Not a good answer and a pain but it got the job done.

Thanks. SB
