Sort first by Field1 and then by Field2

Hi,

How can I make sort first by Field1 and then by Field2?

LOAD * INLINE [

Name, DateEntering, DateGraduation

Name1, 01/02/2010, 01/14/2017

Name2, 01/02/2010, 01/15/2017

Name3, 01/01/2010, 01/01/2017

];


I need first sort by DateEntering and then by DateGraduation.

As a result next


Name, DateEntering, DateGraduation

Name3, 01/01/2010, 01/01/2017

Name1, 01/02/2010, 01/14/2017

Name2, 01/02/2010, 01/15/2017


Forgot to add that I need make it in an object properties.

Where you want to sort?

Are you looking to create new field based on sorting these in Back end (script) ?

If yes, provide some more information.

You can do something like

Data:

LOAD * INLINE [

Name, DateEntering, DateGraduation

Name1, 01/02/2010, 01/14/2017

Name2, 01/02/2010, 01/15/2017

Name3, 01/01/2010, 01/01/2017

];

Noconcatenate

New:

Load Name, DateEnterig, DateGraduation Resident Data Order By DateEntering, DateGraduation;

Drop Table Data;

Hello Max,

I have one question, out of two expression which one will take precedence while performing sorting. Could you please give us the sample sort order required?

BTW, On Sort Tab of object properties window, you can make use of Sort By Expression feature. Please refer attached sample expression.

Please correct me if I misunderstood.

Regards!

Please, look at the attachment qvw file.
You may see Bar Chart where sort is by 'DateEntering' field.

This sort is not quite that I need. Sort order in Chart should be like in Table Box.

First by 'DateEntering' field and second by 'DateGraduation' field.
