I know it's been a while since you asked, but I also asked this question on a tech support call last week.


They got back to me and said I had to export the data from the Worksheet in VW to Excel, and then copy it back again once I'd sorted it by Hoist ID.

Can you make a video step by step, please?

You can do this in a normal Vectorworks database report
use the create report command, set the criteria to hoist objectand use hoist ID as the first column. In the column options their is a sort setting, choose either ascending or descending depending on your requirements. You can also do this in the report after creation by clicking on the columns database header.
Note you will need to use a numbering/naming scheme that enables you to sort the hoists but otherwise this should not require exporting the report to excel.


Also you can make multi level sorts on a database report based on multiple columns sort settings, The top level sort is from the first column you assign a sort order to, the second comes form the next column you add a sort to, etc...
