    Default Grid Default Sort

    Can someone please provide insite on how to set the default sort column for a Grid?

    I am having difficulty determining from the help files and properties how to accomplish a default fort column and order.

    Generally you'd set the order in your query properties to load a grid with a default order.

    I'm new to Alpha. Where do I find the query properties? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the Grid Builder. Can you post a print-screen for all to see?

    Thanks,

    Click the connect button and you should see the area to create add/edit a filter order etc.
