Quickie: Do an ACT 2010 lookup by state, how is it sorting?

[ Edited ]

I must be brain-dead, but I'm not understanding how ACT is sorting my lookups. With older versions, when I did a lookup by state, the results came back alphabetized by city. Perfect.

 

Now, I don't see the rhyme or reason for sorting.

 

Who knows?

 

(Thanks!)

 

I should add: If anyone can tell me how to made the statewide search sort by alphabetized city, I'd appreciate it.

Sorting is specified by Edit, Sort, and this default is respected. When you do a lookup by state, that should be the order it's displayed in.  However, after you do the lookup, if you want to sort by a different field, in the contact list, just click on the header for that field and it will sort by that field. If you want to sort by more than one field, you would need to change sort under edit.
