I have couple of sites and each contains a list. I'd like to add Title field to default view in each of those lists but I want them to be 3rd column in the view. Since I couldn't find anything similar to the web-based editor of sharepoint list views, where one can choose in what order should columns be displayed, I'm asking for some guidance and/or help with that.
