Allow reports to be sorted differently than the columns are displayed (ie. display = C1,C2,C3 sort order C3,C1,C2)
In DB2 Web Query the records are by default sorted by the order that the columns are displayed in the report without being able to change the sorting other that changing the order of the columns. There is the capability to "hide" columns to change sorting but this can be very confusing, error prone and seems to be "kludgey".
This request is to allow the sort order to be defined independent of the order that the columns appear on the report. This would make it more like other SQL products and their use of the Order By clause.
This feature would allow report developers to create reports that are more meaningful to the consumers of the reports, both other employees and customers by presenting data in a logical order.
The developer may need to create a report that has multiple users that will have different interests and needs. Rather than having to redesign the report the Order By clause could be specified to change the sorting of the data.
in special cases the sort order will not work as it should and the creates a subtotal mismatch.read the attached pdf-file to understand and recreate the problem, or read the pmr. Use Case: in special cases the sort order will not work as it should...
