Two weeks, five books, and numerous internet forees and still I do not "get" how to massage the API to manipulate a string to display it in forward then reverse order.

I believe I know exactly which method to use but that's it...no idea how to "implement" it and my sticktoitiveness is gone. I know when I'm beat. I'm wasting time now (that I don't have).

I need a life-line.

John,
Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but have you tried searching this forum on "SortNames"? It gave 55 results when I tried it just now.

I read through a lot of this when I was doing Sortnames and although not all messages were helpful to me, most we're interesting. What did hit the nail on the head for me was a tip from Marilyn (in the oldest message but one, funnily enough, one Bill Bozeman was in the soup at that time). It restored my confidence no end .

Thanks, Dick.

I did see the post you reference...I get that part but the implementation escapes me. I'm not normally this dumb...I don't get it. Of course, I won't give up, but nothing makes sense.

I'll re-check the forums...

John

Create a class that implements the interface you need.

Thank you, I believe I have enough to get this done now.
