Sort a query-based report

Sort a query-based report

Sort a query-based report

This is drving me crazy and I've tried suggested solutions which don't seem to work. I have a simple query which includes LastName and FirstName fields. I can sort the query just fine for LastName then FirstName. I created a Report based on this query but it doesn't sort. I read that you're supposed to sort the report and not the query but the sort and filter options are all greyed out. Can someone please tell me there is an easy solution? Thank you.

RE: Sort a query-based report

I find it hard to understand the sorting and grouping are disabled in the report design view. One possible issue is if the fields are memo data type.
