Sorting a Table

You can Sort the rows in a table by one or more columns in ascending or descending order. You can also apply sequenced, nested sorts to columns in the Table section.

To sort a column:


Select the column you want to sort and click the Sort button on the Standard toolbar, or choose Table then Sort Ascending or Sort Descending.

To apply sort conditions using the Sort line:

  1. Click Sort on the Section Title bar to display the Sort line.
  2. Drag Results items from the Catalog pane to the Sort line.
  3. You can add items to the Sort line that are not in the Outliner.

  4. Establish a final sort sequence by reordering sort items.
  5. Items are sorted left to right on the sort item. To reorder the sequence, drag each item to its new position.

  6. Double-click specific sort items to toggle ascending and descending sort orders.
  7. Ascending is the default sort order.

  8. Click Sort Now on the Sort line.
