Interactive Sort in MAtrix

  • First off, I'm using SSRS 2005 SP3. Secondly I know how to add interactive sorting for most things but I keep running into a wall with this one situation...

    I have a Matrix that groups orders by region, please excuse the ASCII ARt...

    | TotalOrders

    ----------------------------------

    Region | count(orderNum)

    The users was to be able to sort both by region alphabetically and by totalOrders ASC and Desc.

    The region is no problem and already done, I just can't seem to get the totalorders sorting taken care of.

    In the interactive sorting tab for the TotalORders textbox I've tried the following...

    sort expression =Count(Fields!OrderNum) and every variation og the grouping/scoping options I can think of and still can't get this to sort the way I want.

    Anyone have any experience sorting aggregates in matrices?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Finally found my own answer...

    According to this MSDN Forum, it's not available in SSRS 2005.

  • I run into the same problem. That's not the answer I was hoping for...

  • Luckily for me it was a simple total that I Was doing in the matrix with the details in a table below it. I just wanted to use the same dataset for both. I rewrote the matrix as a table, did all of the cross tabs in the query and am now able to sort it. I suppose the other answer is upgrade to 2008?
