Question Reorder fields in a type 3 display session

I have a display session based on main table say A with one view field, item.

on the occurances records, I have fields from another table B in addition to those from A. One of those fields is a date field. I was wondering if there is a Good way to order / reorder records by this date field (just the occurances records).Any kind of dynamic reorder / dyanamic index?

Addition of this field in the the table A is an option but would like to avoid if possible.

Thanks

Hmm yea, in Baan IVc4 you can't really sort on anything other than the main table index.

How are you linking table B to table A? Would it not have the same index as A, since you have a 1 to 1 relationship it seems like? (Maybe an example with your table indexes and relationship would help if I am mis understanding that). One suggestion, can you just make the main table B instead? And change all the view fields on the form to B instead of A. You can then use the sort from B....I may be missing or assuming critical issues, show us your table structures.. You could update table A based on updates to Table B if you need this to be a maintain...that could get messy as well, but it sounds like you just want the display.

Or..make a report that sorts like that and add a button to print it.

Thanks for your suggestions.

I am still weighing the options of moving the date field over to the other table, changing the session's main table ( this I had tried already but becomes more complex once the updates are considered- btw this is not a strictly display session). Thanks
