Learning to Sort Records

Although filtering is one of the key components of an effective report, it alone is not enough. Often, to properly see the key pieces of data, a report needs to be sorted. Crystal Reports is quite flexible when it comes to sorting, allowing any field type to be sorted, as well as multiple and ascending or descending sorts. Sorting is applied using the Sort Expert.

Working with the Sort Expert

The Sort Expert is launched from a button on the Experts toolbar, and also via the Record Sort Expert item on the Report menu. Figure 7.5 shows the Sort Expert.
