my C3D11 is having one hell of a time sorting survey points by description. I crash everytime I open a drawing, open a survey database, edit points, sort by description.
Happy New Year!
I have not had that problem, but have only sorted within the drawing, not in a database, and have only had about 5000 points. Do you have any special characters that may cause and issue, expecially the quote, apostrophe, and sometimes the # symbol?
Hope this gives you a place to start looking.
Ha! I only have a few hundred points in this job!
I have sorted my points in the database in the past so I don't know what is going on here. I even opened a new dwg and imported my stuff from scratch and It still bugs out. I really don't want to start another "Autodesk Hates Surveyors" thread(I am the ONLY civil 3D advocate in a Bentley dominated office). I do love getting laughed at by all the Microstation users when I am cursing C3D from my cube. I love even more when I have to use Microstation then admit how much better it performs than C3D
I will try other jobs and databases but I am out of patience for the year with this glitchy, buggy, overpriced, over-rated, new-version-before-the-old-version-is-fixed so-called program. (sigh)
Happy New Year!
If this is the same crash (bug) while trying to do various things in the Point Editor or Survey Point Editor screen that we had a while back, it was taken care of when we installed Update 2 (version 3) of 2011. The Survey Point Editor only has a "Description" column that shows the raw description in 2011. The Point Editor does have both.

Thanks for the replies. I appreciate the help very much, unfortunately I have not had time to check these suggestions. When I do I will be sure to accept the solution.
Thank you all
