Re: how to change the table or column order in data set?

Column sorting in query editor is possible and easy, just drag and drop columns to desired spots.

 

But that sort order will not be applied to the report view. The tables are alphabetically sorted in the report view, and the table columns are sorted alphabetically too.

 

By renaming tables or columns (prefix with some index or alphabet), you would be able to achieve the desired sorting. But thats a workaround.

Re: how to change the table or column order in data set?

Thanks for your reply.

 

I am looking for Table/Column order change in data set, NOT the SORT Order in report.

I want to move the col3 to FIRST position in the table3. As well as Table4 to 1st position in the tables list.

 

  1. Table1
  2. Table2 
  3. Table3
    1. col1
    2. col2
    3. col3
  4. Table4

 

Thanks in Advance.

Thanks Tarun. If we have any other work around other than Prefixing with some string, that will be great.
