Semi-Sorted A database can either be sorted, unsorted or semi-sorted. The first two are pretty obvious, but it is less clear how a database becomes semi-sorted. A database becomes semi-sorted when a new record is added to a currently sorted database and the option to keep records sorted is unchecked. It can also become semi-sorted if a record is edited -- but only if one of the fields used in the sort is edited. Deleting a record will not make a database semi-sorted.
