New Sort Key showing default sort values for the PRODUCTLINE dimension
By default, New Sort Key displays sort information for the first dimension in the column area, as shown in
Figure 17‑29. The default Key value, PRODUCTLINE, indicates that the values in the PRODUCTLINE dimension are sorted by product line name in ascending order.
On New Sort Key, supply the necessary sort information, as follows:
In Group Level, select the dimension on which to sort.
In Key, select the data on which to sort. Although the typical choice is to sort on totals, you can also sort data by a specific dimension value. Depending on your choice, you may be required to provide additional information about the dimension level and value on which to sort.
In Direction, select Ascending or Descending. Choose OK to save the sort definition.
