I changed the alignment of the field from left to right but the sorting remains the same, why?
When you change the justification in the data dictionary the structure file is rebuild but not the data file. The result of this is the sequencing of the data is unaffected by the change of the justification. This is a documented bug and will be corrected in a future release of APPX (Bug #768). In order to get the change in justification to effect the file (data), you have to force it to restructure the entire file (add a field or change the length of a field) or write an update to read each record and simply set the field into itself and rewrite the record. This will put the data in the correct order.
