It’s not a matter of wanting it to come up in some other order.  It’s wanting to be able to use CHIRP’s sorting features to let you re-order entries prior to programming the radio.

Or load two copies of a new CSV file that’s never been used to program a radio, I assume.

So the location, although highlighted, doesn’t get copied.  I did not know that and I’m sure that others did not either.

Thank you.  That was very helpful.
