I was just searching for the subjects: education credit, qualified education expenses, and some others.

For these topics, I would like to be able to view results in date order, newest first. What someone had to say about the education credits in 2006 is just not as relevant as more recent posts.

I love this forum and greatly appreciate the time spent by the many contributors.

Is this a function I have missed, or possibly a future possibilty?

It's one of the most-requested improvements ever, I think - so in case it helps, you are not alone. Apparently it's not as easy a fix as you might think, as it's still on the list of changes we're all hoping for.

I can give you a partial solution: expand your search results to 500 views and read from the bottom up. It's strange to have to do this, I know, but it does work, mostly.

Here is a page with more search hints - stuff that you didn't ask for, but may help you anyway! And thanks for searching.

I can work with the 500 view thing. Nothing like a good workaround until things can be different. Tnx
