The OCD Table Column Re-Orderer

The OCD Table Column Re-Orderer

Don’t you hate it when you have to add a new column to your carefully handcrafted table and it’s now at the end of the table?
Away from it’s proper and logical place within the other table columns.

Yes?  Well me too.

Enter The OCD Table Column Re-Orderer, a simple APEX application where you can drag & drop your columns to their proper location within a table.

Get it from the repo

  2. My wife says that I’m OCD (or perhaps somewhere on the Autism Spectrum) because when things aren’t in their proper places (as defined by how my mind perceives “proper”), it drives me crazy and I tend to obsess over it and devote an entirely unjustified amount of effort toward defeating the offending “whatever.”

    So I completely appreciate this tool because, yes, I hate altering a table to add a column and then finding its order to be “unnatural” (despite the ordering not mattering at all from a relational processing / concepts standpoint).

    Bravo, and thank you for sharing this masterpiece!
