How do I change the order in which my list columns are displayed in listform.aspx? A field that I want to appear at the top of the form is displaying at the bottom of the form (I want the "Labor Category" field in the attached graphic to appear after "Opening Number". I changed the field order in the relevant list view, but the order of the items in listview.aspx remains unchanged.

Hello,

The list view and the order of the fields therein has no connection with the order of the fields in the form.

Here are the steps to change the order in the forms:

- open the list and on the List Tools ribbon click the List tab > List Settings
- click Column ordering below the list of fields
- in the ensuing screen select the order of the fields by changing the numbers in the drop-down.

cheers, teylyn

That is what I did, but the order of the items in the form did not change. I set the ordinal number of the Labor Category column to 2, but the column remains sorted last.

Can you post the screenshot of the screen where the column order is changed?

I just revisited you original message - I changed the column order in the view, not at the "Column Order" link. But my list settings page does not include the Column Ordering link for some reason - I have Create Column, Add from existing..., and Indexed Columns, but no Column Ordering. I checked with our admin team and they have no idea why that link is missing.

I found my problem. Column Ordering is disabled if Allow Management of Content Types is enabled. I turned off Management, fixed the column order, and turned Management back on. Thanks
