Sorting in page properties report

Hi friends,

I have a page properties in my page. So when i trying to sort the values by using the arrow in the column then it will display the list properly. But when i am trying to sort by column using the sort by property available in the page properties it is does not sort properly.

for eg. i reverse sort the value 10,11,12,7,8,9 and it shows the result in the following way 9,8,7,12,11,10 instead of 12,11,10,9,8,7.

How can i resolve this one,

Thanks in advance,

Karthik A.

This widget could not be displayed.

it might be chronological order consideration, the sorting order changes.

ex: take 9,11

decreasing order would be 11,9

but it compares 9 and 1(first digit of 11),so 9 is bigger hence print in 9,11 order

Are the values you are trying to sort editable? I believe instead of having values like 1,2,3,4 you may be able to change it to 01,02,03,04 and it may work correctly for sorting.

Hi David,

Hello everyone,

I have the same problem. Unfortunately using 01, 02, 03, instead of 1, 2, 3, ist not working. See screenshots. Any other suggestions?



Thank you in advance!
