Hi. If you sort a specific column in a table, if you are unaware that you must select all the columns (as I was) you loose the data relationship across the columns or across the rows (same thing). I've lost hours of work activity because I erroniously selected just the one column I wanted to sort by, not realising I should be selecting all of the columns in order to protect the data integrity across rows. I think a sort warning feature is required for Writer, or some protection feature. Rich
