Sorting the data

You can change the order of the lines in a selection list by specifying the columns to be used in determining the sort order. For each column, you can specify a sort order of:
Ascending (A)
The contents of the column are sorted in ascending order. A down arrow (↓) is shown in the rightmost position of the column heading.
Descending (D)
The contents of the column are sorted in descending order. An up arrow (↑) is shown in the rightmost position of the column heading.
None (N)
The column is not used in determing the order of the lines.
Note: For any selection list, there is a default "held" column for which the sort order is, again by default, ascending (A).

You can specify a column to be used in determining the sort order in any of these ways:

Note: When you change the sort order for a column, the sort order for all other columns is set to none.
