sort order

(OP)
I am using CR 16

I want to sort order of report based on a parameter. I include the parameter in a formula and then put this formula in sort order

If {?SortOrder}= "Counterparty" then {qrcr_cpartyderivativeslimits.CounterpartyGroupName}
else totext({qrcr_cpartyderivativeslimits.AvailableLimit})

The only problem is I have to turn amount {qrcr_cpartyderivativeslimits.AvailableLimit} into text and when you do this the sorting order is not correct

RE: sort order

Add a formatting condition to your text function like this:

Totext({table.number},”0,000,000,000.00”

Add additional zeros at the beginning if numbers can be higher than 1 billion. use this in your sort formula, but display the actual field in your report.

RE: sort order

(OP)
this worked to large extent but didn't handle negative numbers. I would expect (want) something like this as the number sort order
-6
-3
-2
1
2
3
4
5

but I got

1
-2
2
-3
3
4
5
-6

RE: sort order

Make two sort formulas like the following and add them to the sort order separately:

//{@sortbycounterparty}:
if {?Sort Order}="Counterparty" then
{qrcr_cpartyderivativeslimits.CounterpartyGroupName}

//{@sortbyavailablelimit}:
if {?Sort Order}<>"Counterparty" then
{qrcr_cpartyderivativeslimits.AvailableLimit}

Only one of the formulas will have an impact, based on the selected parameter.
