You move a field from the “Choose Fields” subpanel to the “Sort Order” subpanel by selecting the field(s) and click the “> Move >” button. The order of fields in the “Sort Order” subpanel determines the primary, secondary, tertiary, etc. order of the records. The records are first sorted by the primary sort field, then within those records with matching primary sort field, the secondary sort field is used to sort the subsets of records, and so forth for the teritary and further sort fields. You can whether a field using an ascending, descending or custom order in the sort process. You can sort or unsort the records or cancel the sort process.
