SAP Webi - Sorts

Sorting can be applied in table on sections, charts to organize the data in a specific order in a Webi report. Default sorting that is applied in a report is from left to right order of objects in Result object of Query Panel.

You have the following Sorting Orders −

Default − This is default order where data is sorted as −

  • Ascending numeric order for numeric data

  • Ascending chronological order on date

  • Chronological order for months

  • Alphabetical order for alphanumeric data

  • Ascending − In this, smallest value at the top to highest value at the bottom. Example − 1000, 2000, 3000, or Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai

  • Descending − In this, highest value at the top to smallest value at the bottom

Custom − Using this, you can define your own sort order. Custom orders are available on dimensions and attributes and not on hierarchies, measures and level.
