The "Feature class to Feature class" tool shows up and down arrows near the field mapping section that would indicate that it is possible to to reorder the fields upon exporting.  These arrows don't work.  Anybody know why? 

Also, if I rearrange the fields in the table within arcmap and then export, it exports with the original field order.

Is ESRI working on allowing permanent field order changes through these methods?
