So you go to create a report using the Toolbox and the Point List Civil 3D puts out isn’t in order. Well it is in order, the order created, but you want them to be in a more logical numerical order. What to do? Well if you were me you’d do this.

The report will now run with the point list in order. If we want the list sorted by another field, then change @name to the desired field.
Want to add more information to the report? I can provide services to do just that. Contact me at the email on this page near the top right for more information.
