How to sort by last name and first name, family name

I'm unable to find a path in the address book to find a way to sort by first name

Thanks for your help

To sort by first name:
View > Show name as: "first of all, the last

To sort by last name:
View > Show name as: ' last, first

View > sort by > name and order growing

In your case, affect the 'Show name for what is' first of all, the last
then set the name and ascending sort

    Hi Theodore,

    You can try the following steps and check.

    Right-click on the column header bar and select 'more' and check the option ' name'. The column is displayed. You can drag it where you want and sort upwards or downwards by clicking on the header.

    Alternatively, you can try the following steps.

    a. right click on the Contacts folder.

    b. change the display «Détails»

    c. right-click on the 'name' column header, click on "First name", then click on 'Last Name'

    I bought a copy of Photoshop Elements 10 and first 10 elements (grouped together 5 discs).  I installed on my Windows 7 laptop not starting disc 1 and then he hung up and I couldn't eject.  I wasn't invited to all other drives.  I read while I should I have started the installation with Disc 2 that I install on a Windows 7 computer.  I was wondering if I need to uninstall what I've done so far and start over with a new installation failing disk 1 and beginning with disc 2. I should do?   I have not connected to internet and still 'active' product.  If I uninstall I need to remove the serial number somehow disable them to preserve for the re - install on the same computer.  I don't want to lose one of my licenses as I want to install these programs on my desktop as well.  Read through many similar queries on these forums and have become quite confused.  I hope someone can help.

    As long as you disable the application before you uninstall, your license will be released upwards and resettlement will use 1 license only.

    You can follow the steps you mentioned above to uninstall / reinstall.

  • How to get the last row and the sum of all columns in a query


    is there a way to get the last record for a column and the sum of all the Archives to another column in the same query.

    Best regards

    You must set your needs correctly volunteers to help here...

    Your data are not good enough to bring you a precise solution. Purpose, you do not have a column, which draws a distinction between the first and the last entry.

    The solution becomes easy based on your design.

    I introduced a grouping called 'id' column and a time column called 'time_of_insert' (only this way you can say with confidence that you can differentiate between the first and last (also a foolproof solution) - you can possibly use sequence (instead of date but if you say that you can insert two lines at the same time) ((and then likely sequence would be a better choice to differentiate instead of a timestamp field) etc...)

    With your sample data, something like this can be done to get the desired results.


    WITH dataset AS

    (SELECT 1 id, 10 used, 8 remain, systimestamp + 1/24 time_of_insert FROM DUAL


    SELECT the 1 id, 1, 7, systimestamp + 2/24 FROM DUAL


    SELECT the id 1, 2, 5, systimestamp + 3/24 FROM DUAL


    SELECT 1 id, 1, 0, systimestamp + 4/24 FROM DUAL


    SELECT 1 id, 0, 0, systimestamp + 5/24 FROM DUAL


    SELECT the 1 id, 1, 4, systimestamp + 6/24 FROM DUAL)

    SELECT *.

    (SELECT SUM (used) ON sum_all)

    FIRST_VALUE (stay)

    COURSES (PARTITION BY id ORDER BY time_of_insert DESC)


    Of THE dataset)

  • I want to sort my contacts by last name in Windows Mail. How can I do this?

    original title: sorting of e-mail contacts

    I seem to have a default setting that sorts my contacts by 'Name' now.  I can't turn it off and sort by "Last Name" I was doing?  I recently changed phones and synced the phone with an online database, but do not think it would affect Windows Mail.

    Simply click on the column heading to sort by that column.  Clicking once sorts ascending and click twice to sort descending.  If you do not have the name column, then right-click on the column heading and choose more and select the family as a column name.


  • Is there a way to sort the list of subscribers by last name?

    Is there a way to sort the list of subscribers by last name?

    CurrentY it is sorted by full name, sort alphabetically by first name. I would prefer to sort by last name.


    Not within the system, unfortunately.  The solution is to export the report and manually separating full names into first and last name columns to get what you're after.

    It is currently on our wish list to improve in the future.

    Kind regards

  • Cannot organize Windows Contacts by last name

    When I open Windows Contacts, the contacts are all sorted by first name (the full name, in fact).  Is it possible to sort/organize the list of contacts by last name?  This is how most people organize their address books.

    Not with Windows Contacts, the feature set is not very good.  Best thing to do is to Download Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail replacement, allowing you to sort by last name, in addition it is secured for contacts, in general, is much more functional.
