Hi Miguel;

  No worries .. this ticket is now the best way to track this enhancement request. Emails sometimes just get lost in the shuffle. Yes, a GetFilter() command would be great as well Ken!

Hi Chris,
About not finding the ticket: I think I might have requested it in the time "when we were asked for suggestions". It might have been something like a mail to Julie J. but I'm not sure about it.
Anyway, it's not that important, but it will somehow "force" Appeon to fix the problems with getting the sort correctly with our current methods :)

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for reporting this problem and for your valuable suggestion. 
We'll transfer this enhancement to our product team for consideration. 

Besides, except for supporting the GetSort() function, I hope it can support the GetFilter() function as well.

Hi Miguel;

  I looked again through all the tickets with the keyword "getsort" or "sort" and did not see any related tickets to this suggestion.

Regards .. Chris

Yes, I've requested it in the past I think :)

Hi Miguel;

  Thank you for that great enhancement suggestion!

  Yes ... this has been a long requested enhancement in the older Sybase and even PowerSoft days. I have seen this request before but, it never seemed to get implemented.

  I will now transfer this ticket over to the main Support / Engineering team for their review and recommendations.

Regards ... Chris

There's a SetSort() function for datawindows, but there's no GetSort(). Instead we have to do describes which now seem to be malfunctioning in certain cases (as seen in "recently" reported multiple bugs).
Can we get a GetSort() function please?
