Description

Hello Nicola,

It seems to me, that the usermanual of datatool has an bug. Because there is no difference between table 5.23 to table 5.24.

I am reading your documentation very intensive, because i want to sort a column with entry 20.04.2013 but in order of year, month and day.

I am very sure, that my bug report won't solve my issue, but I want to tell you, that I have determined this (maybe) bug.

Best regards

Peter Ebelsberger
