    I have tried several combinations on arranging my cingular bills with no luck.

    What date combination would I have to name the bills to have them to be in order when I choose Arrange-by Date?

    For times such as this I usually name my file yyyymmdd and then order by name

    Have you tried leaving out the tack symbol?

    Unfortunately, that won't work because the year is at the end of the file name. Ex. 090703 would come before 100704. That's why putting the year first is essential.

    Thanks Angel (The Original) for the info. I tried it the US way and it wouldn't work so had to use your example with the year first and it works fine.

    I didn't try that. It seems eaiser to read with that in there for me as the numbers kind of run together otherwise.

    Thanks everybody for the input.
