Wilbur, PAF5 does not have that feature as an automatic report. To sort by birth/death date, however, you would need to have your dates entered in a style similar to this: 2001-08-30 which is possible in PAF 5 (you can change the style in TOOLS|PREFERENCES). However, if you have any dates prefixed with either "Before" or "After" those dates will not sort in chronological order. If you try to sort dates in the standard way of entering you will see a rather strange listing. If you create a focus list after you have changed your date style, you can save that to an "RTF" file. You can then open that in your word processor and have it sort by date. But as I said above, any "odd" dates wont sort in chronological order.
