Topic: Taxon Sort Order

Hi all,

So, the situation is... I have a list of Species which I can view either as Access table/ Excel spreadsheet/ text file etc. I would like to be able to sort this in taxonomic order by tagging them in some way. I understand that the Taxon_Group table in Recorder 6 provides this sort of function. Would it be easy to assign a code to records in my species list using this table? Or, if not, any other suggestions how this might be done?



Re: Taxon Sort Order

Hi Matt,

In recent versions of Recorder 6, the Index_Taxon_Name table contains a Sort_Order table, generated from the Taxon_Group and Taxon_List_Item tables, which should be exactly what you want.  You could use Access to join to this table to get this information.

Best Wishes,
