Form submission re-orders results - Macromedia Dreamweaver

This one's got me stumped. I have a form created in DWMX and when the form is submitted the results are re-ordered. In other words the results for question 5 are at the top and the results for question 1 are further down. So how do I make it so that the results are in order ? Here's a pasted copy of the results: 5a: checkbox 5c: checkbox 5e: checkbox 8a: checkbox 8e: checkbox 10a: wrgnik 10b: wgb[oin 11a: wvgopbuj 11b: wg[on textarea: o[nwvg[n select: B question+1: akiafbpni question2a: A question2b: B question2c: radio question2d: A question2e: B question+3: A ...

    You're not saying if you're using a formmail script to process the form.
    Go here and you'll find a link to en excellent script that will allow
    you to sort the order of the results:

    Thanks Dan for the reply.

    I am using a clone of Matt Wright's FormMail.

    <form method="post" action="/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi">

    I will take a look are your script, but I'd prefer to work with what I have already installed.

    Nut,

    I understand you want to use the one you've got installed, but I really
    recommend the one from sourceforge. It's not only easy to install, but
    comes with the best instructions I've seen.

    Open the "formmail.pl", scroll down 40-50 lines and you have the
    configuration parameters.

    For detailed info about each parameter, scroll down another 700 lines.

    Cheers,

    With Matt's script you sort the order of the fields by adding

    <input type=hidden name="sort" value="order:name1,name2,etc...">

    If your script is a clone, perhaps the same thing will work?

    Thanks Little One, but unfortunately the clone doesn't support that hidden tag.
