Hi all

I have a list that is creatred from another field. IE field "Item"'s 
entries are put into a "ItemList" field via this script......

on mouseup
   repeat with n = 1 to the number of cds in this stack
     put fld "Item" of cd n & return after theList
   end repeat
   delete last char of theList -- clear trailing return
   put theList into fld "ItemList"
end mouseup

Now I want to sort this list alphabetically and in future double click on a 
line to go to the respective card. I think I'll do this via a sort popup or 

Any Idea I tried this from the runrev docs
on mouseUp
   sort items of field "ItemList" by word 1 of each
end mouseUp

and cant see anything on the list.
