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.

What is the format of the month? If it is alpha, you can use ACROSS COLUMNS syntax. Or sort across the month number and NOPRINT it as well as the alpha month.

I hope this is what you are looking for. If not please supply the format of the field containing the month you are sorting on.

You can use 'HIGHEST' OR 'LOWEST' before the column to sort the column.

If you are looking for Customized sorting then Go ahead with Ginny's Solution

The other option with across is the key word COLUMNS.

e.g.
ACROSS FIELD COLUMNS Val1 AND Val2 AND Val3 ....

Thank you all for your reply.

This is a alpha field. I created a case statement with numbers and sorted by that number. It worked.

Thanks again for your suggestion.
