    Hello Wojtek,

    I have added sorting functionality to the JOIN_TABLE command as follows:

    The ALLOW_DUPLICATES parameter now has two new options:

    KEEP_ALL_APPEND_SORT_ASC - same as KEEP_ALL_APPEND, except that the list of values will be sorted in ascending order.  

    KEEP_ALL_APPEND_SORT_DESC - same as KEEP_ALL_APPEND, except that the list of values will be sorted in descending order.  

    In either case, if all of the values are numbers, they will be sorted using a numeric sort, otherwise, they will be sorted using a text sort.

    This change will be in Global Mapper 18 daily builds dated November 3, 2016, or later. Simply download the appropriate installer and run it to install the latest build.

    Cheers,
    Bob

    I have opened feature request #17463 to add a new duplicate handling mode.  We will evaluate adding this functionality to a future release of Global Mapper, and post a message to this thread when the status of the feature request changes.
