MS-DIAL file import: sorting

Hi,

Has anyone else faced the odd issue where MS-DIAL does not allow you to change file name/order after import? It imports in a weird alphabetical order and you cannot change it. So if my file names are 1 - 150, MS-DIAL imports them in this order:

1
10
11
12
13
14
15
.....
2
20
21
22
23
24...

and so on.

After this it assigns the file a 1-150 analytical order which isn't right, so it requires me to edit the sample orders in excel which isn't easy to do as it needs matching to the 1,10,11,12 format as you cannot change file name once imported.

It would be nice to be able to sort the imported data within MS-DIAL GUI interface. Or allow for edit of file names or order.

Hi,

If you go to Option - > File Property Setting and then just try to click on the table and sort it works for sorting for all of them: Batches, Analytical order and so on.

Yes, you can type and make them alphabets or numbers or hybrid ones such as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C or 1A, 1B, 1C and so on!
Worked for me just now.

Thanks,
