Chresty-

I'd vote for your first option without the "Category #" at the front and in that order.

Hi Chresty,

I'd also vote for your first option with the first 10 file names, in that order, without "Category #" at the beginning.  This order is how Nomenclature 3.0 is organized in the published book and how we are used to working with the categories.  Thanks, Debra

Re: Chenhall Nomenclature

Hi All,

The EMu thesaurus hierarchy view (the tree of all the thesaurus terms) will order the records alphabetically. The only way to keep those 10 Categories in a specific order is to add something to the terms to make them sort into their assigned place. A number prefix would work. A constant string prefix, like "Category", followed by a number prefix would also work. However, cutting "Category #" off the term will not work.

Hi Aaron and Chresty,

Given Aaron's info, my vote would then would be to add "Category #:" at the beginning.  This is how those categories look in the published book.  Thanks, Debra
