Kim - thanks for your response.

I assume that is so - however, all I am doing is trying the next alphabetic point in the sequence of files. (A list in any form has a human context even though we use it with computers).

I understand your rationale - but except for clarity of programming, I do not see sense of the result. To play devil's advocate, what tangible use is the place where you end up? What would you do with it? What activity would typically follow?

A failure to find in a search is always a possibility. For my purposes, the current behaviour has no value when you are trying the find an author in an alphabetical list.

Does anyone else have a need for an alphabetical sorting? It could be implemented by a CO6L - the L is currently unused.
