    Custom Reports - Family Tree Maker 2019

    In my first attempt to 'filter individuals' for a Custom Report, everything appears by surname, yet when I view the actual Report it produces, it is sorted from A - Z (ie Alan to Zebedy) by the first CHRISTIAN name and NOT by surname.

    Now today, no idea as to what I have clicked on but with another attempt to create a Custom Report sorted by Surname, the actual Report is still sorted by Christian Name, but now is from Z - A (ie Zebedy to Alan).

    Is there a way to get one's Custom Reports sorted by Surname, A - Z?

    Hi there,
    Need to check first that your index is correct. Is it like mine - Family, Given Name?

        Just did a test on Custom Report for Marriages. Now back to being sorted A - Z, but by Christian Name.

              Wowee! Absolutely brilliant. Thankyou very much.

              I have been looking for ages. Looked in the Manual but could not see/totally missed the information.

              Many many thanks
