Sorting records in a grid

You can sort records in grids by clicking the column headers. For example, you can click the Last Name column header in an employee grid to sort employees by their last names.

Click the header once to sort the records in ascending order, and a second time to sort in descending order. An up or down arrow is added to the column header to indicate how the records are sorted.

Note: The arrow is displayed on the right edge of the column header, so you may need to expand the column to see it.

You can also sort on multiple columns. After sorting on the first column, hold down the Shift key while clicking the header of each additional column that you want to sort on. Each column is marked with an up or down arrow to indicate how it will be sorted. When you're finished selecting columns, press Enter to sort.
