Sorting the Report Information
The sort by column is the first line item listed in the Sort pane. The values in the sort by column are sorted alphabetically e.g. if the first column is MFG, the report will sort the list by manufacturer in alphabetical order. If there are no sortable values, the Sort pane remains blank.

Setting the Sort Order
The values within the sort by column are listed in ascending order (A-Z) by default. To sort in descending order (Z-A), uncheck the Ascending checkbox.
