Drop Down list in web form out of sequence

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

Good afternoon,


I have searched the knowledge base to no avail, so...


I created a simple web form with a drop down list containing 3 times: 9:00 am, 9:30 am, and 10:00 am. The column in the sheet with the drop down list is in order. However, when I created the form and previewed it the times were displayed in this order: 10:00 am, 9:00 am and 9:30 am. I sent it to myself to check how it displays "live" and it was still out of sequence. I tried adding zeroes in fron of the nines but that did not work.


Any help is appreciated.

    I just tried to re-create the problem but was unable to do so. Created a new sheet with a dropdown column, three times exactly as you had entered e.g.



    Then I created a webform with just that column and the entry set to a dropdown. Here's how the preview looked:



    So I'm a little stumped as to why it might be behaving differently for you. At the very least you can see that it can work? Sorry I can't be of more help. Perhaps I misunderstood what you are trying to achieve?

    I just tested this as well and my times are in order. 


    Are you still having trouble with this?

    Thanks Peter and Travis,


    Weird but iI could not get it to show in sequence so I deleted the form and re-created it and wouldn't you know...it works fine now.
