Sorting data behind report

    Hi,

    I have some relatively simple reports that pass parameters to SQL
    Server stored procedure to retrieve data. These reports are set to
    group the data by an individual's name and print their name along with
    a count field. I would like to sort these reports by descending value
    of the count field. (normally I would do all of this in the stored
    procedure but the SP is designed to be "generic" - called from other
    reports so I want each report to take ownership of customizing the
    returned data).

    Is there a way to sort the report by a non-grouping field?

    Thanks

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
