Simple Quest :- sort list of invoices from suppliers in date of Invoice order rather than date of posting that seems to be the default.

Using a data sort command makes no impact, I must be mising something so obvious ?

New user trying to edit, what I presume to be, a report already written by sage to produce a remittance advice.

I note there are two reports, one lists each Invoice in £ total, the other lists everything like if the Invoice has been been split for nominal coding.

I seem to be able to sort the 'everything' list but not the 'total' list

I note a field called 'audit-split_date' appears in both reports is this causing the problem ?

I think the problem is that there are 2 ways things gets sorted, the primary method is the data structure this is the group header/footers and then within that the sorts are applied.

I think you have already established that in your report there is a transaction number header which takes precidence, so you need to add a date header above it, the headers can be empty, it just structures the report so that things are groups by date and within the date by transaction rather than just by transaction
