Under Opportunities, New, create the name of a product. Add more names and not in alphabetical order. The order you add items should be the order produced in your quote. Unfortunately it lists in alphabetical order--Act 2010. For Act 2006, to get around this I have always used cost as my order. The value is always 0 so the order I list my products is the order the quote is generated. I don't have to do any editing in the final quote; but not the case in 2010. I am surprised more people are not using opportunities that way.
An example: Lets say I list the name of the product first; then features, and finally a comment line. Looks something like this:
"this is my favorite animal"
In alphabetical order it would be a mess. In Act 2006 it is not. In 2010 I would need to edit every line, once a quote is produced. I cannot use2010 sorry.
