Drop Down List not displaying items in alphabetical order?

Feb 14, 2013 at 2:51 PM
Firstly, very many thanks for this web part it's (nearly) perfect!!!

My only problem is that I cannot work out how to get the dropdown list to display in alphabetical order (The default view on the selected list is configured A-Z). Is there some trick I'm missing?

I appreciate that you're probably working hard to get the new release out, but I would be most grateful for any quick pointers you (or anyone else) might be able give.

Ah, I realise that the order of the drop down list is determined by the sequence in the column on the 'looked up' column rather than the original lookup list. So in this example, for each meal I've added foods by looking up a separate alphabetically ordered list of foods, if i then try and filter the list by items in the Foods column the drop down list displays items in the order in which they appear in the Foods column:

Is there a way to change this so that they are ordered?
