    Note: The sort fields cannot include File, URL, MultiGroup, MultiRelational, MultiSelection, MultiUser, or non-fixed length Text fields. SubRelational fields use the field type that they reference, and follow the rules stated in the previous sentence.
  2. If you want to sort by additional fields, drag them to the then by fields. You can specify a maximum of four fields.
  3. To change the sort order for each field, click the up or down arrow next to the field. This determines whether the search results in each column are sorted in ascending or descending order.
