Views: Sorting by Documents first then folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • Morning all,

    I've a rather simple question today, but one that's has me perplexed for a little while.  Can anyone advise if its possible to sort/arrange a document library containing both documents AND folders, in such a way that all documents appear at the top of the view then followed by the folders?

    I've got this done in an old 2003 site but it doesn't seem to be doable in 2010.  As such, any ideas are welcome.

  • Hi ,

    Add custom Column called [Order] and then add this field  to folder /Item content types and then order the items based on it.
