Company list not printing alphabetically

I am trying to print Reports|Company Reports|Company List but it is not printing alphabetically by company name.  I cannot determine what is the sort field What sort option dictates this report & where can I change it?  I have checked my contact & company lists & there are sorted by company name.Thanks

Re: Company list not printing alphabetically

Its sorted by HierarchySortedName and I'm not exactly sure what that order is.  But you can change the sort order to company name.

 

- Edit the report.

- Double click "Section 1([Com:HierarchySortedName]).  The Define Sections dialog window should appear.

- Select "Section 1 and on the right side under fields, select Company or whatever field you want to sort by.

The hierarchy sort groups divisions (even subdivisions) under the parent company.

Editing the report & changing the sort field did the trick.  Thanks
