When I run "preview topic" I get a table that lets me sort on any column, but only ony way; that is, z to a but not a to z.
The page on my site does mention that the methods have not been tested for RoboHelp 8 and above. It occurs to me that you may have tried the method using a table added by using Insert > Table. Try with a table added using the Insert Table icon. That inserts tables in the same way as RoboHelp 7 and below.
Post back if that still fails. Also add which of the two methods on my site that you are using.
See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips
Not yet -- will let you know when I get a chance to try it
