    Order of Result Sets Exceed Display (or Sort) Limit

    When there are too many lines in a result set to display or sort the entire set, can the most recent records be forced to display, that is, to display in descending ALEPH-number order instead of ascending order?


    When there are too many lines in a result set to display, the records which display are either the highest record numbers (sort option = D, for descending) or the lowest record numbers (sort option = A, for ascending).
    * This is controlled by setenv set_default_z110_create_order.
    * The Web setting in www_server.conf defaults to D.
    * The GUI setting in pc_server_defaults defaults to A.
    It is recommended to leave the web setting as "D".
