SSRS: Column Sorting

Applying sort ability to columns.

When report data exceeded many pages, it’s important to provide a mechanism for users to easily change the sequence of the rows.

I’l begin with an existing report which displays 7 pages of data concerning employee sick hours.

1-column-sorting

To apply a sort to the Title column, I’ll configure Interactive Sorting on its textbox properties.

2-column-sorting

Upon executing the report, I now see arrows in the column header which provide sorting capability.

3-column-sorting

When I click the arrow, it sorts the records alphabetically, from A-Z.
To sort the records Z-A, I just click the arrow again.
