ACC1x: Negative GroupOn Interval Reverses Sort Order
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1
When a nontext field on a Microsoft Access report is sorted in ascending order and is grouped on an interval, the sort order will be descending, not ascending, if the interval is set to -1.
This behavior is by design. With the interval set to -1, the report is sorted on the negative result of the expression or interval.
Steps to Reproduce Behavior
- Open the sample database NWIND.MDB. Create an new report based on the "Order Details" table.
From the View menu, choose Sorting And Grouping. Select Order ID for the first field. Fill out the Sorting And Grouping box as follows:
Sorting And Grouping -------------------------- Field/Expression: Order ID Sort Order: Ascending Group Properties ------------------ Group Header: Yes Group On: Interval Group Interval: -1
- Drag the Order ID field from the Field List box onto the report.
- Preview the report. Note that the sort order is descending.
