Why can't I sort the "Description" field?
The QuoteWerks description field is a "Memo" type database field. Since, memos can contain thousands of characters of data, databases for performance reasons do not support sorting.
You can utilize the Medic Utilitiy to Copy the first 255 characters of the Description to a CustomText field. This is accomplished from the Utilities-Data Manager for Product Databases menu. In Version 3.0 you will use the first tab and in Version 4.0 you will use the Pre-Defined Product Database Queries Tab.
