How to sort cross tab data

Figure 17‑29
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.
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.
Figure 17‑30 shows an example of sorting on product line grand totals.

Figure 17‑31 shows an example of sorting on a specific dimension value.
