Change print out order

If I print out my entire log, how can  order the contacts, for example by date, call sign, number etc.?

Hi James (call?),
 
I’ve never printed out my whole log – I have over 40K contacts.  But I do print out every one of my contest logs so I can keep track of confirmations.  Here is what I do:
  • Bring up your whole log (click “All” to the right in the blue ribbon header)
  • Click EDIT >> Copy Current List to Keyboard
      • In my case, I highlight the subset of Qs I want, and use “Copy Selected Records to Clipboard.”
  • Open up Excel
  • Paste (You will have ALL of the information columns.  I paste this raw data to another spreadsheet page just to have a backup copy. )
  • Delete the columns you don’t need
  • Format the columns/spreadsheet as you want
  • Order the columns as you wish
  • Print
As you have this in a spreadsheet, you can reorder the columns many times and print different versions.
