      Hi John,

      If you want to re-arrange the order of tabs with a clip then, IMHO, there's no other way than to save the names, close all files, and re-open them in alphabetical order, for example.

      Here's just a basic clip that could achieve this for me (designed for Ntb 7.1):

      ^!Set %Nr%=0

      ^!Inc %Nr%
      ^!If ^%Nr% > ^$GetDocCount$ Sort
      ^!Set %Name%=^$GetFileName(^$GetDocName(^%Nr%)$)$
      ^!Append %Files%=^%Name%^%NL%
      ^!Goto Loop

      ^!Close All
      ^!Set %Files%=^$StrSort("^%Files%";0;1;0)$
      ^!Set %Files%=^$StrReplace("\R+\Z";"";"^%Files%";RA)$
      ^!Set %Files%=^$StrReplace("^|$";"\x22";"^%Files%";RA)$
      ^!Set %Files%=^$StrReplace("\R";";";"^%Files%";RA)$
      ^!Open "^%Files%"

      Probably, there are more details that need to be resolved -- like focussing a particular document after re-opening. There certainly are solutions for that...

      If you '^!Close' a document while '^!SetScreenUpdate Off' is set, then it vanishes from the screen only at end of clip. To avoid this, you have to set '^!SetScreenUpdate On' in between, close the document, and set screen update back to "Off" if necessary.
