    Posted: 05 Sep 2022 at 4:18am
I have a datetime field in report which have time values (ascending order) like :
00:01:00,07:00:00, 13:01:00, 14:00:19
I have applied the ascending sorting in the report using record sort on this field but records are displayed in below manner:

07:00:00, 13:01:00, 14:00:19,00:01:00

The 00:01:00 value field is always displayed in last instead of first place.

Do not know why this is happening.

Please help.

Thanks

DateTime sorting is not as straight forward as you would think.

I always build a group, then I can go into the grouping properties, and for DateTime you need to specify if it is by the day, the week, and a couple of other ways.

Try them out. Most likely it is set for By Week, which I think is the default.

Hopefully, this will get you pointed in the right direction.

The other way is to use formulas and break out the time parts and do sorting/grouping by them. i.e., left(cstr({datetimefield}),2) to get the hours.
