In ACR/Detail, you can choose the key sort order for reports : ascending, descending, or unsorted, that is, shown in the order in which items appear in the input source.
You want the order of items in a report listed in a certain order, but not necessarily one of the choices described above.
Review the input source to determine the order of the items and then determine the order in which you want the items to appear in your report.
- If the input file lists the items in the desired order, choose unsorted for
the key sort order.
- If the input file does not list the items in the desired order, choose
ascending order and use a number as a literal in the first part of the key
to manually order the items.
