Reordering fields (columns) in table

Hi! Is there a way to reorder fields (columns) in a table? I've seen the drag and move feature (dragging a column and moving it to the right spot) but somehow it doesn't work on my end....I tried changing the order of fields in the form but then the new order only shows in the form and not in the table. Right now I've just been deleting fields and re-entering them in the right order, please tell me there is another way!! Thank you!

  • Are you referring to the list of fields in the admin settings for the table, or the fields on a table report?

      I believe I'm referring to the fields in the admin settings for the table...I haven't created any table reports yet...

        If you want fields to sort together alphabetically then use the naming convention that has a prefix to get them in the sequence that you want.  You would never ever delete fields and re-create them just to get to them to appear in the correct sequence.  

        Click the field name column heading to get them to sort alpha.
