I have to set a matrix report as follow:
- in the rows the machine_id.
- in the column the material_lib.
Table material ( material_id,material_lib,ordre)
- in the cells quantity.

I get successfully my matrix through the wizard of report, but i should display the columns sorted with the field ordre.

Please have you any idea how to get the columns of the matrix sorted.

Thank you,

Best regards.

Did you include ORDER BY into the report query?

Also, I guess that you should set columns' "Break Order" property to Ascending (or Descending) - you'll know it is correctly set by an arrow sign:

Of course I have set an "order by" clause to sort my rows.
I can not introduce the field of order of my columns in the "order by" clause because it is not set in the select clause.

Concerning the "break order", it is about sorting the columns to ascending or descending. But I should, sort my columns by the field ordre.

So how can i introduce this order?


Thank you.

Perhaps you could try to include that column into the SELECT statement, but - when wizard prompts which columns to display - omit that one?

Basically, Littlefoot's idea is correct.


I suggest you following small steps. (tue it according to your needs)

1) Double Click Q_1 in data mode, and edit your query by introducing field ordre in select and order by clause. Click ok.

2) You will notice that the field "ordre" will appear in G_1. Just drag the field and move it in G_2 where field material_lib is present.


Thats All.

It will bring it in order of ordre.

--Good luck
