There are other situations, however, which might require you to sort all the records in your datafile. You might want to sort the records by Author and date for browsing, or you might want to sort by the primary (first) keyword.
The Sort feature enables you to re-order the records in your datafile by the contents of any field. There are number of different ways you can re-order your datafile, with different sort types and sort orders.
To sort a database
If you choose one of the pre-set Bibliographic sorts, Citation will automatically set the fields to use for sorting.
If you have chosen Sort By Fields, you will now need to click the drop button and choose the fields for the sort.
We recommend assigning a filename with an .srt extension.
For instance, if the name of your datafile is biblio.dat, the sorted datafile should be named biblio.srt.
You can use the Bibliography feature to write citations for the records in the sorted or reordered datafile.
