I need to list the year in month order, not alphabetical order. Here is what I have but it does not order correctly. Any suggestions?

DEFINE FILE METRIC_DATA_HOURS
MO/A12=DECODE MONTH
(January January
February February
March March
April April
May May
June June
July July
August August
September September
October October
November November
December December );
END
TABLE FILE METRIC_DATA_HOURS
PRINT
DST.MO
BY MO
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XML
END


Thanks,
Denise

Hi Densie,

can you remove BY MO statement from the TABLE file METRIC_DATA_HOURS, because you are using BY MO it is sorting with alphabetical order.

try that once. It should work...

Anmol,

I have removed the BY MO statement and it still sorts alphabetically.

Thanks,
Denise
