help with reports

This may be a little too specific to what I'm working on, but I'm trying to generate a report sorted by date and not contact name. I have a contact list with names, locations, dates they were contacted and details of the conversation. The activities report I run breaks up the report with location headers (which I like) but then under that sorts it by name and date (e.g., 5 entries for Joe Smith in chronological order followed by 3 entries for Jane Doe in chronological order). In the template, I only see commands for sorting by date. . .nothing for contact. Is there a way for me to turn off this contact sort so it's solely by date?

No. The global sort of a report is based on the base table of the report. Activities can't be the base table for an ACT! report. You might want to make a feature request.
