SQL Server Reporting Services: How to add Interactive Sorting to a Table with no groups?

Standard

Sorting is one of the common requirements in a SSRS report that business users ask for, even if they don’t ask – it’s great to have interactive sorting enabled at places where it makes sense. If you’ve a Table with no groups, here’s how you can enable interactive sorting on the table:

1. Right Click on the Column Header:

2. Click on “Text Properties” and navigate to “Interactive sorting”.

3. Check the box “Enable interactive sorting on this text box“. Also since there are no groups, we want to sort “detail rows“. Also, you’ll need to specify the sort by column. For demo, I picked Sales_Amount but you could also have an expression here if you wanted:
