List Groupings

  Asked By: Alyson    Date: Jan 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 769

I am looking for a quick and dirty way to group a long list by the alphabet. It is a long contact list of about 800 users and I want to group via A, B, C, etc. Currently the only way I can group is by last name which is virtually useless as almost no one on the list has the same last name.

Is there an easy way to do this, or do I need to contact our developers?

Can you create a calculated field with something like:

=LEFT(Name,1)

and then group  on that field?

You can create a calculated field that is just part of the last name (the first 2/3 characters) and group  on that…
