About Sorting

It might be desirable to sort certain sections of a document in alphabetical or currency value order. For example, in the financial statements it is possible to sort the expense section of the income statement in alphabetical order. Alternately, this section can be sorted by amount in descending order based on the current year values.

In a table, text or cells in one column or in several columns can be sorted. When sorting, CaseView rearranges the paragraphs in the specified order. It is also possible to arrange items in a unique order using manual sorting.

CaseView offers different methods of sorting:

It is also possible to create sort groups within the document to sort just a specific part of any section or table. Two or more sort groups can form a Link Set and be made to behave alike when sorted. See About Sort Groups for more information.
