    Hi Ravi,

    In the workbook, right-click on the display attribute allows you to sort it in ascending or descending order.

    Thanks,

    Allan

      Yes..there is a way.

      If you go to the query definition, right-click on the characteristic on which the attribute is based (i.e. the characteristic on which you select the attribute.

      Right-click on it and go to "properties". On the bottom of the screen, you will have a section called "sort order". Once you click on the check-box, the drop down box will be filled with he characterictic, as well as the attributes it has.

      From here you can select how you want it sorted.

      Hope that helps.
