Base Report not sorting newly added records

Postby acreech » Tue Jan 24, 2012 6:19 am

I have a Database of recipes. I have a report that sorts the records by "Which Meal" Ascending, then "Recipe Name" Ascending. The report is not sorting newly added records. I have moved the table to an excel sheet and then into a new database. This did not solve my issues. I am not sure why the report is not filtering correctly, or how to fix it. my problem database is at this link. http://ubuntuone.com/7DzyWo3V6fRDOJZ06yfVkF I have removed two other problem tables and just left one of the problem tables/reports there.

Hello

You do not work with a report only with a form.

I think when you reload your form then all data is will be showed.

You can the navigation toolbar.

I am not sure what you mean by "Reload" your form. All of the data is there, but when I bring up the report in order print it. It is not sorting it to the correct order. I am working with a report in order to print out the database.

Query your data in any order of rows and columns you like.
Create the report from that query.

I can try that again, but I had a querry setup. I have what is now 3 tables all in one table. Then I querried it. The querry would sort correctly but the report still did not filter in the new records. The existing records would all be in the correct order, but they also appear in the table in the correct order. The new records would appear at the end of the report in random order. The new records are in random order and the report would not take the information from either a querry or a table and sort it to the correct order.

I enter a new record into your form, save the record, open report "Family Index" and the new receipt appears in alphabetic order (OOo 3.3 and LibO 3.3.4, LibO 3.5 does not run old style reports).

Sorry I should have been more specific. For some reason the index works, but run just the report "Family". That is the report that is not working right. The only difference is that when I set up the reports using the report wizard, the report "Family" has 4 groups and "Family Index" does not have any groups. It appears that the problem that I am having is coming from the "grouping" part of the report. I can run a report with all the information in the database and no groupings and then it will sort correctly.
