Backslash Or Using the Backslash (\)

If you have organization records whose name begin with “The” or if you would like a constituent record to be sorted differently (in query, reports, exports, etc.) than it is currently displayed in the constituent’s name field, consider using a backslash (\).

When you enter a backslash (\) in the constituent name on a constituent record, query sorts beginning with the first character after the backslash.

For example, if you have the organization, The Community Foundation, in your database, you should enter The\Community Foundation in the Org Name field on the Org 1 tab.  The record will be sorted using “C” instead of “T”.
