Check Numbers not in order

Recently Moneydance has started messing up my check number order when it puts them into the register. I will enter several checks written the same day and the will jump around in order with out any pattern I recognize. If I try to fix it by clicking on the sort tab at the top of the check number column then the date column gets messed up. When I set the date column back to chronological order the check order is all messed up again. What gives?

    Hi Joe Cotton,

    Try this...

    Right-click (CTRL-click for Macs) any transaction in the register.
    From the resulting context menu, select Sort By > Date/Check#
