How do I make product results display alphabetically

How do I make product results display alphabetically

I am new to this and need my products in the various categories to display alphabetically. I guess that it needs a Sql statement to tell it to do this but I have no idea how to create the statement. I guess it is ORDER BY in some sort of statement but I have no idea how to do this. Be grateful for any help.

You can use the Dreamweaver Recordset tool to help with creating the Order by Clause.

On the product results page, double click the products recordset.

If the Recordset tool is in Simple View, Select the product name column in the Drop Down list next to sort.

simple view: sql too complex

when i click "simple" view, dreamweaver tells me that it can't show simple view because "sql is too complex"....how do you do this in the regular view?

In the database items Section, expand the products table, select the Product name column and click the order by button.

Dreamweaver error

Dreamweaver: "Making this change would require changing code that is locked by a template or a translator. The change will be discarded."

This is a common error you will get in Dreamweaver using templates.

Usually yo can get around the error by closing Dreamweaver and then trying again.

no luck

i tried exiting and reopening dreamweaver several times and i still get the dreamweaver error message...
do you think i would still get the error if i changed the code in the sql box (and if not, what change or addition would need to be made to the box?

SELECT *, (ProductStock - (SELECT Coalesce(Sum(DetailQuantity),0)
FROM orderdetails INNER JOIN orders ON OrderID = DetailOrderID
WHERE DetailProductID = ProductID AND OrderDate > ProductUpdateDate)) AS NumLeft, (SELECT MAX(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS TopPrice, (SELECT MIN(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS BottomPrice FROM products LEFT OUTER JOIN productcategories ON ProductCategoryID = CategoryID WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID

try changing it directly in the code.

On the products_Results.php page at line 161:

php:
$query_WADAProducts = "SELECT *, (ProductStock - (SELECT Coalesce(Sum(DetailQuantity),0) FROM orderdetails INNER JOIN orders ON OrderID = DetailOrderID WHERE DetailProductID = ProductID AND OrderDate > ProductUpdateDate)) AS NumLeft, (SELECT MAX(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE  productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS TopPrice, (SELECT MIN(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS BottomPrice FROM products  LEFT OUTER JOIN productcategories ON ProductCategoryID = CategoryID WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID";



change that to:

php:
$query_WADAProducts = "SELECT *, (ProductStock - (SELECT Coalesce(Sum(DetailQuantity),0) FROM orderdetails INNER JOIN orders ON OrderID = DetailOrderID WHERE DetailProductID = ProductID AND OrderDate > ProductUpdateDate)) AS NumLeft, (SELECT MAX(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE  productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS TopPrice, (SELECT MIN(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS BottomPrice FROM products  LEFT OUTER JOIN productcategories ON ProductCategoryID = CategoryID WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID ORDER BY products.ProductName DESC";

that worked, but it didn't

thanks so much for helping me out on this, but it didn't really work: i implemented the changes that had written, and now it sorts the products alphabetically, except in reverse alphabetical order...this is for the "view all products" results page....for the individual category product results a couple categories list in correct alphabetical order, but most are in reverse alphabetical.....please advise

<?php
$maxRows_WADAProducts = 5;
$pageNum_WADAProducts = 0;
if (isset($_GET['pageNum_WADAProducts'])) {
$pageNum_WADAProducts = $_GET['pageNum_WADAProducts'];
}
$startRow_WADAProducts = $pageNum_WADAProducts * $maxRows_WADAProducts;

mysql_select_db($database_localhost, $localhost);
$query_WADAProducts = "SELECT *, (ProductStock - (SELECT Coalesce(Sum(DetailQuantity),0) FROM orderdetails INNER JOIN orders ON OrderID = DetailOrderID WHERE DetailProductID = ProductID AND OrderDate > ProductUpdateDate)) AS NumLeft, (SELECT MAX(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS TopPrice, (SELECT MIN(ProductPrice) FROM products as prod2 INNER JOIN productoptions ON productoptions.ProductID = prod2.ProductID WHERE productoptions.GroupingID = products.ProductID AND prod2.ProductLive <> 0) AS BottomPrice FROM products LEFT OUTER JOIN productcategories ON ProductCategoryID = CategoryID WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID ORDER BY products.ProductName DESC";
setQueryBuilderSource($query_WADAProducts,$WADbSearch2,false);
setQueryBuilderSource($query_WADAProducts,$WADbSearch1,false);
$query_WADAProducts.= preg_replace("/ AND /", " HAVING ", $WADbSearch2->whereClause, 1);
$query_limit_WADAProducts = sprintf("%s LIMIT %d, %d", $query_WADAProducts, $startRow_WADAProducts, $maxRows_WADAProducts);
$WADAProducts = mysql_query($query_limit_WADAProducts, $localhost) or die(mysql_error());
$row_WADAProducts = mysql_fetch_assoc($WADAProducts);

if (isset($_GET['totalRows_WADAProducts'])) {
$totalRows_WADAProducts = $_GET['totalRows_WADAProducts'];
} else {
$all_WADAProducts = mysql_query($query_WADAProducts);
$totalRows_WADAProducts = mysql_num_rows($all_WADAProducts);
}
$totalPages_WADAProducts = ceil($totalRows_WADAProducts/$maxRows_WADAProducts)-1;
?>

The last part of the query is:

ORDER BY products.ProductName DESC


to change the direction it is sorted, change that to:
ORDER BY products.ProductName ASC
