[chirp_users] How to save/upload after sorting the CHIRP rows?

Dave,

I'm not a Windows user.  I'm on a Mac running OS X, a BSD-derived OS with a bash shell.  In my case, I was concatenating a distance column with the comment field, pulling columns from two CSV files, with one being a 'CHIRP-spec’ CSV file.  So a spreadsheet made sense, not only for the operation, but also for printing the resultant "channel" list.

From your other post:

> You're kidding right?   Have you actually tried this ... with 28 channels?  That is even more tedious than hand sorting 3x5 index cards

Try to keep in mind that CHIRP is an open source project being created by volunteers and provided to us at no cost.  And the people taking the time to answer your questions are trying to help you, again without any remuneration.

So you can sort them for display in any way you like (frequency, name, mode, etc.), but the memory location number for each entry will remain the same.
