Blob Set Table

Post by nevinmaria » March 4th, 2016, 8:38 am

I was wondering when using the Blob set table, how can I rearrange the the data to put it in an order that suits the quantification when you have various ranges/

e.g. I would like the data to be in an order of ali 8-10, ali 10-12, aro 8-10 aro 10-12 but for some reason it comes out as ali 8-10, aro 10-12, aro 8 -10, ali 10-12. Is there a way to get these in an order other than starting a new template? I have had other people using the software in training, but when i come back to it, the arrangement of data is different and they don't know what they did (it's not their fault). Is there a way to put these in order again?

thanks

You can sort Blob Set Table by clicking on table headers. The sorting order is remembered.

If you sort the table by Name by the descending order, the order would be:
aro 8-10, aro 10-12, ali 8-10, ali 10-12
You can also put some index numbers in Group Description and sort the table by Group Description.

By the way, the Name is sorted in the dictionary order. If you want the numbered names sorted by numbers, the number parts need to be padded to the same length. For example:
ali 08-10, ali 10-12, aro 08-10, aro 10-12

Thanks so much qtao for the response. I have tried this and it is not coming in the order. I can get in an order that way that is a bit better, but still not the desired order. I was just wondering if there was a way to maneuver them in the order I require, if not it is ok, I will have to work around it.

Thanks

If you don't need the residual group row, it would be easy to index the groups as shown below:

You can hide the residual group by:
Configure > Settings > Blob Statistics > Residual > uncheck Report Residual Groups in Blob Set Table

With the residual group, the residual group will be placed at the first row.
