    Default Printing group counts in order

    I have a report with no detail section being printed; only the group1 footer. The records are sorted by 'House no.', which is some arbitrary number assigned to each person's house. Again, the detail records are not printed. In the footer I'm counting the no. of records of each house; so I end up with the house no. and the count of records with that house no.
    What I'd like to do is then sort the resulting output of this report by the frequency of occurances of each house number, with the most records of a certain house no. at the top.
    I would imagine this taking a PreProcessing run through the report, but I don't know how. I'm sure I saw this somewhere, but that was long ago.
    Any ideas?

    In your "group 1" properties, set to "Specify Order", expression should be your "count" calculated field. Alpha wil do the processing for you.
