How do i sort a column which contains 2 merged elements?

I have combined 2 elements , brand and brand description to the one column.

For example prior to doing this, the column read out only the brand name , which in this case was an abbreviation i.e AC. Now it reads AC-Acura , which is fine.

However the sorting function for the column (ascending or descending) is no longer available.

Can anyone show me how i could , if possible , add the functionality back into the column.

    Hello Eamon,

    Are you suing a "Compund Field"?
    In this case the sorting should be available on the component level.

    Else: How did you merge the elements?

    Bye,

    Hi Horst,

    I have found a solution. In the properties of the element under design, there is an IdentifierDescriptionDataField that was empty and not bound to anything. This way enables me to sort accordingly , unlike the other method i originally used.

    Thanks
