Sorry if this has been posted..I searched by as many key words as I could and did not see it.

 

14.3 (also in 14.2).  When I add custom attributes to the Data warehouse and fun the DW job, they appear in the Adhoc view in the order in which they were added and not alphabetical

 

Example

 

If you add fields

A, C F  and run the job

then go and select fields B, D and E

run the load DW job

go to create an Ad hoc report and under the domain (project for example), the custom attributes section shows, but when you expand it, the values will show as

A, C, D, B, D, E

 

Is there a way to get them to show as A, B, C , D, E, F?

 

Since there is no search field or smart search, it makes it very difficult when you have a lot of custom attributes for users to find the data they want.   Also, if you started an Ad hoc report and then choose Add fields, and expand the custom section, it is even harder, since that window is small and can't be expanded to see the full field name.  It would help if things were alphabetical by default
