    Report footer totals breaking query sort order

    Hi Guys,



    I have an invoice report that I need the line items to list in a specific order, which I have created in the query for the report.

    As part of the report, the line items are totalised
    Code:
    =SUM(lineitems)
    in hidden field in the footer of the line items report and having these totals, the sorting I have placed in the query is ignored?

    Can anyone advise if they have found this and how I can resolve this.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorting in a query source is ALWAYS ignored by reports.

    Reports have their own sorting, along with the grouping.

    Thanks for that, I was not aware of that. I have other reports, pick list, that does not have any fields in the footer, and they display as the query. I Will take a look and see how I can modify the sorting via the footer/detail.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
