You can sort the table view on any column(s). To sort on a column, just click on a column header. An icon is displayed in the header to indicate it is the sort column. The arrow indicates whether the sort is ascending or descending. Click again in the column header to toggle the sequence.

To sort on a secondary column hold down the Ctrl key, (Mac users hold down the Apple/Command key), and click on another column header. For example to sort your database by author and title, first click on the author column header. Then hold down the Ctrl key and click on the title column header.

There are several preferences related to sorting. For example you can tell Readerware to ignore initial articles. Select the Preferences menu item, then Views to change sort preferences.
