Can't sort with Group Sort Expert

Hello Experts!

There is a report with three groups. All group headers, details section and Group Footers 1st and 2nd levels are suppressed. In the 3rd Group Footer there is a summary field with average aggregation for a numeric field.

According to requirements I need to sort all 3rd group footer lines on the summary field desc. But Group Sort Expert can't help me.

We use CR 2013.

Can it be done?

Any workarounds are welcome

Thank you,

    Could you please share the screen shot of the report in Design and Preview mode?

    And how the data should appear?

    Also have you tried with Edit Group-->Sort and select the appropriate field you want

    Hi Ulad,

    This is most likely because the summary uses 'print-time' functions.

    Is this summary field based off of another summary field? If yes, then you cannot sort the group using this summary.

    Workarounds involve using a Subreport or calculating the summary in a SQL Expression or a SQL Query.
