Hi, The <sort> element appears to make a distinction between uppercase and lowercase characters, i.e. increasing="true" will sort files File2, File4, file1, file3 in that order, rather than file1, File2, file3, File4. Is there anyway of making the sort order case insensitive? Kind regards, Glenn Comiskey Data System Administrator Fugro Global Environment & Ocean Sciences Fugro House, Hithercroft Road Wallingford, Oxfordshire OX10 9RB, UK Registration No: 2985431 / VAT No: GB 655475606 Tel: +44 (0) 1491 820500 (Switchboard) / Tel: +44 (0) 1491 820559 (Direct) / Fax: +44 (0) 1491 820599 E-mail: g.comiskey@xxxxxxxx <mailto:g.comiskey@email@example.com> / Website: www.geos.com <http://www.geos.com/> Please note: * The information contained in this message is privileged and confidential and intended only for the use of the addresses.
