Inability to sort encrypted fields

Postby benj » Sun Jul 05, 2009 3:24 pm

Is there any way to sort encrypted fields? After adding to a database I tried to sort but it won't sort encrypted fields. (HandBase4 on Windows XP)

Looks like the solution to this one is to unencrypt the fields that I want to sort. In this case, I would like to submit a feature request which would allow sorting of encrypted data while the database is open/decrypted for the following reason. If someone finds my phone and opens the database, they would be more inclined to attempt to crack it if they see Citibank, US bank, Ebay, PayPal, etc..under the company field than if they could not open any of the fields.
