Hi Paul,

I should have read it one more time before posting. This should be the 
correct script:

repeat for each word myWord in field "Just One"
   put myWord & comma after myNewdata
end repeat
delete last char of myNewData
sort items of myNewData
put myNewData into field "Just One"

Best regards,
