Building Hierarchy Trees
SCOPE allows you to sort the nodes on any of the trees. You can SORT the whole tree or just from a selected branch downwards on the following fields:
Names of nodes of any Branch of any Tree - This is very useful for documenting your counts so that you can easily locate an item within a list. For example you may insert your Data Groups as you identify them and then select to sort the list when you finish, enabling easy checking for completeness.
Links for any Branch of any Tree - This is very useful when you have long lists of Data Groups or Notes and need to know exactly which ones are linked to the currently highlighted process, without navigating the length of the tree.
Type for any Function and Data Trees - This standardises the documentation of your counts and facilitates locating processes,by sorting all your processes under each branch into Inputs, Outputs and Enquiries and your Data Groups into Internal Logical Files and External Interface Files.
Locate your cursor on the branch node you want sorted and right click the mouse. If you want all Levels below this level sorted then select (Sort Branch – All Levels) or if you just want to sort the direct descendent children of the current node select (Sort Next Child Level Only).
