A sort is a method of ordering data on the Data View page according to the values in one or more fields. When viewing the search results on the Data View page, in the Customize section, you can select a sort from the Sort list.
Note: The sorts available, if any, are determined by the associated model file, which is specified by your system administrator. If no sorts are available, none is contained in the model file.
When you apply a sort to the search results, you tell MSClient which fields to sort and the sort order or direction (that is, ascending or descending) for each field.
