As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hi Folks,

Consider the following:
  
TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM 
     CAR.SPECS.HEIGHT  WITHIN CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
BY  LOWEST CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
END


The columns that are displayed there are fine except I would like to change the sort order.

I would like to sort (in descending order) this list by the HEIGHT after it calculates the total height for each COUNTRY. So W GERMANY shows up first, then ENGLAND, then ITALY, then JAPAN, and finally FRANCE.

I'm thinking of creating another query that calculates the total HEIGHT, and then joining to the rest of the data (a sort of subquery). But I can't help thinking that its not necessary. But I don't know how else to do it.

Any tips?

Thanks CoolGuy,
The query I was working on also had subheadings and other fields, but I figured it all out with your sample up there.

Thanks again!
