Hi,

How to sort Date in webi report,

Date Received issue balance

05-06-11 0

05-06-11 3 -3

05-06-11 -10 -13

05-06-11 13 0

in this we Received on same date on 5-6-2011 and issue on same date, but first three fig is showing negative value.

    Hi Nitin,

    I didn't get exactly what u r looking for. but as per my understanding ur req is some like sorting data based on date,.... and data should be in asc order.

    For that you can try like this.

    1. Sort on date

    2. Sort of receive obj (if it is a measure then create a dim variable object in webi report and assign receive formula to it)

    3. Sort of issue obj. (if it is a measure then create a dim variable object in webi report and assign receive formula to it)

    Cheers,

    Suresh Aluri.

    If I understand correctly, this is specifically about sorting dates, but applying multiple sorts to a Webi block.

    If so, then simply sort your column (using the sort icon in the toolbar) then select the next column and apply another sort. The order you add the sorts is the order that the items are sorted. You can later view the properties for the block, and right down the bottom you can see and change the sort order.

    If you question is specific to dates, check out [this post|http://blog.davidg.com.au/2011/03/sorting-months-in-webi.html].
