Change order of record
This is one of those simple things that is sure to turn into a tough problem. I wonder if you can point me in the right direction.
Here's the issue. I am using Data Assist to manage a menu for a restaurant. They have a number of appetizers, entrees, and deserts. I store them in a table called menu with a field for course that I filter to show all appetizers, all entrees, or all deserts on a different page.
Say the owner decides he has steak, chicken, and filet on the entrees and suddenly decides that he wants filet to display first on the entree menu. How can I change the order? I realize I can create a field in my table called "itemOrder" that he could assign a number to. But if I have Steak (1), Chicken (2), and Filet (3), then changing itemOrder of Filet from 3 to 1, means that I have to alter the number for all the items.
There has to be an easier way of changing the display order. Any suggestions?
