Start Paradox at one of your known "good" stations. At the Paradox main menu,
press Alt-F10, select "Value", then type in SORTORDER() and press Enter.
You'll see a message at the bottom-right corner of the screen, indicating the
name of the sort order. For example, let's say the value shown is INTL. Now,
go to the "problem" station, and do the same thing. It should also show INTL - if not,
then the station is using a different sort order definition file (paradox.sor).
If the names are different, (let's say this station shows "ASCII") check the path
of the station that's having the problem, and look for the file paradox.sor
in any of the directories in the path. If you find the file, use the dos command
TYPE PARADOX.SOR, and you'll see a message like:
Paradox XXXXXX Sort definition, version y.z
XXXXX is the name of the sort definition. Most likely, it will match the name
shown at the problem station (ASCII in this example). If it does, rename the
file to something else, then try Paradox again.
If the problem only occurs when a particular user is using that station, check
that person's private directories for paradox.sor as well.
Hope this helps!
