Type Sort Order Question

Recommended Posts

I just added a new coin type to my CoinManage USA 2015 application, but it's out of order. My new type of "Bullion Bars" should be just in front of "Bullion Coins" in My Collection. How can I fix this? I looked through the GettingStartedGuide.pdf document but couldn't find an answer. This is what the order looks like (See Attachment 1)

ANSWER:

The sort order is dictated by the Denomination Weight & Order field in the Type info page, (see attachment image 2). The Denomination weight for the last type defined in Bullion Bars is 5000, so it will appear after the Stella 4 dollar coins (4000) and just before the 5 dollar gold coins (5000). If you set the denomination weight of every type you define in "Bullion Bars" to 4999 it will appear right before "Bullion Coins"

Regarding the Type Order field...In most cases we set this field to the first year of issue in that particular type (for example 1793 for Liberty Cap half cents). This dictates where the type appears in the parent denomination.

I think I did as instructed, but in My Collection the "Bullion Coins" are in front of "Bullion Bars”. However the order is correct in the CoinManage Database Editor. My settings for the types are:

Type info:

Country: United States

Denomination: Bullion Bars

Remaining fields blank.

Sub-Type info:

Country: United States

Denomination: Bullion Bars

Type Name: Silver 5 Troy Ounces

Year of Issue: 2015

Denomination Weight: 4500

Order: 2015

Type info:

Country: United States

Denomination: Bullion Coins

Remaining fields blank.

Sub-Type info of first item:

Country: United States

Denomination: Bullion Coins

Type Name: American Eagle Silver

Year of Issue: 1986-Present

Denomination Weight: 1000

Order: 1986

Etc.

Sub-Type info of last item:

Country: United States

Denomination: Bullion Coins

Type Name: America the Beautiful Silver Quarters

Year of Issue: 2010-

Denomination Weight: 5000

Order: 2010

Etc.

I have embedded Dropbox URL and Image links to pictures of CoinManage Database Editor (correct) and My Collection (incorrect), but I’m not sure they will come through correctly.

Please advise, thank you.
