An easier way of grouping alphabetically

  Asked By: Salina    Date: May 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2106

I am just trying to see if any of you can think of a way to group my
lists and libraries alphabetically. At the present I've just created a
column and I manually make sure that the column is populated with the
first alpha character in the list. If there is an easier way I'd love
to hear it.

Name: GroupByTitle
Formula: "=LEFT(Title,1)"

anything that I may be able to use to get better at the syntax for
the formulas?
