SBL Second Edition Format

Post by Infinitebd » Tue Dec 04, 2018 7:24 pm

I am having issues with the SBL Second Edition Format outputting the bibliography out of alphabetical order. I have checked the format and have checked the box to make sure the output is in alphabetical order. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and or if you might know how to correct this issue.

-Thanks, Jared

Make sure the authors in the library are entered as surname first (Smith, John). The sort is by what's in the library, not what the format outputs.

Thanks I will try that, that makes sense, I have all listed as John Smith in the author field and not Smith, John.

There's a function, Global Change -> Standardize Names, that can help if you have many cases like this.
