This is not as simple as it seems to be.

I have multiple tasks. That I group following a Custom field (text), called TypeC. The custom field can have Custom attributes that are already defined like {P,Ar,D,B}.

I saved my custom group by in the drop menu so I can use it and reuse it. But I don't get the order of the Custom attributes -> P then Ar then D then B. I rather get an alphabetical order -> Ar then B then D then P.

Is there a way to custom sort that in Microsoft Project 2013 ?


You'll need to number the attributes with numbers to get them to sort in a non-alphabetic manner. So 1-P, 2-Ar, 3-D, 4-B.

  • And how to do that in lookup ... ? – user17770 Jul 24 '15 at 13:02
