Hi,

I have a list of projects in a single table each of which has a UID serial number field and separate numerical sort order field.

Wondering if there is a way to display the list in a layout or portal and allow user to select any item in the list,  and move it up or down the list order,  updating the 'sort order'  field with its new position.  

The purpose is to be able to create custom sort order for report layout.

Any pointers much appreciated..
