Sort List (slist) Parameter

Sort List (slist) Parameter

The slist determines the order in which the returned records are displayed. Heres what an slist looks like:


This slist sorts all records by the field whose fid is 7. This is a basic sort that you could use to sort, say, all invoices by a customer name field. But what if you wanted to further sort the invoices under each customer name by invoice number? Just specify the next sort to follow the first sort:


and, for URLs:


with periods separating each fid. In this example, the records are sorted by the fid 7 field, then the fid 12 field. In our example, youd have each customers invoices listed together, ordered by invoice number.

If you dont specify the sort list, then the default sort specified on the Report Layout page determines the order in which records are displayed.
