Restoring a report format

I followed instructions from the Help menu on changing the sort order for the Task List report, but it still doesn't work.  How do I get the old format back?  I tried eliminating the default sort (client) and added a sort by date, to actually make the report something of value, which is was not before... still no good,I have big blank spaces in the report and I can't get it to limit itself to the current month.  I'd like to stick with the original format, at least it had everything  we noted as a "to-do", even though it came out listed in alpha order, instead of in date order.  How do I get it back tothe original?

FSC,

 

What do you mean by the original?

 

which version was the original you are wanting and which version are you using now might help because there were significant changes from V6 not to V11

Sorry, I realized after I had posted that I forgot to say that we're running 2007, v. 9.0.  By original, I mean the default report format for the TAsk List as it was originally installed with the program.  Can you help?
