Access Form: Drag and drop items to create order?
Posted on 2014-08-19
I have no idea if this is possible, but I figure if anyone knows, it will be someone here.
I have a set of records in my database that need to be in a particular order in a report. There is no alphabetical order or id number that can be used in this case. The order of the records will also change occasionally when other records are added.
Currently, have a form in Datasheet view that I can use to do this, but I am using an added field titled "OrderNumber" to change the order. However, this way is clumsy and confusing.
I would really like the user to use some kind of 'drag and drop' method to set the order of the records, but I have no idea if this is possible.
Is there a way to do this? If not, does anyone have any suggestions? I don't know if this is even possible. I am not sure where to start with this.
