Hi Jan and Ken
Try this :
put "école"&cr&"fusée"&cr&"soleil"&cr&"appareil" into tData
function InternationalSort sourceVar
set the wholeMatches to true
put toUpper(sourceVar) into upperVar
put upperVar into sortVar
sort lines of sortVar
repeat for each line theLine in sortVar
put line (lineOffset(theLine, upperVar)) of \
sourceVar & return after resultVar
delete char -1 of resultVar
set the wholeMatches to false
IT DOES THE SAME AS THE SORT LINES Command !!!!
So there is no difference for me and the alfabet is not correct in french
if I write : sort lines of tdata international, it's worse !!!!
any other idea ????
