First: Happy New Year and thanks for all the help in the past.
Second: I am using Windows Vista and Serif PhotoPlus to organise photographs and I have a series of folders names in month order. Is there any way of sorting in month order?

I don't know a way of doing it.

It's not overly laborious to rename 12 folders, e.g. 01 for Jan, 02 for Feb, etc.

Do you have AlbumPlus with PhotoPlus because Serif PhotoPlus on its own doesn't organise photos?
I find that if I name my folders 2009-12, 2010-1 etc then Vista sorts them in month order.

Burrwalnut & Woolwell. Two good ideas there. As my file structure is Year/Month/file I think the first idea would be best. I can use it as 01Jan 02Feb etc.

I use reverse date order for my folders.
eg:
yesterday= 091231, today=100101, tomorrow= 100102.

Remember that it is actually sorting by name so using 01Jan would actually be after 01Feb.
