Display Sequence of Values on Variables Screen

Is there a way to change the order in which selection values appear on the Variables Screen? I have a variable based on 0CALWEEK. When my user goes into the Variables Screen to set the value, she would like to see the most recent weeks first on the selection list. Right now, they are appearing in ascending order. Is there any way to change that?

    Hi Doreen,

    You might consdider using a variable like Current calweek with the option "ready for input" selected. Then the user gets current calweek selected, sees the format on how the week should be entered and can easily change to the week he or she wants manually. If there are any week that is more common to analyse (like last week), you should also set a offset value (to -1 in previous example) so that week pops up first.

    Hope it Helps!

      Right click on the variable and chose edit. There is a box that you can tick in with the name "ready for input". This only applies if you're on version 3.x. Have no suggestion for lowe versions.
