1) File | AutoPilot | Report.
2) Choose the Bibliography data source, and the Biblio table.
3) Specify Author and Title as fields, in that order.
4) Click Next 3 times to reach the sorting page.
5) Specify Sort by Title, then by Author.
6) Click Next twice.
7) Specify static report and provide a file name.
8) Click Create.

Observed: The created report has the Title column first.

Still a problem in 1.1 Beta2
Comment 2 Frank Schönheit 2003-05-30 08:47:28 UTC
confirming and assigning to responsible engineer.

Berend, this perhaps could fit into the criterions for 1.1RC (bug in a
newly introduced feature). However, this would strongly depend on the
risk. If you think that a fix for this is reasonable possible, then
please consider targeting for 1.1RC.

According to MSC this won't make it into the next release. I will fix
it for the Version after (2.0???)
Comment 5 Frank Schönheit 2003-06-03 10:44:43 UTC
then let's target it to 2.0 :)

BC: I found out that the Report wizard behaves according to the MS
Access Report wizard, which was also the reason why I specified the
behavior the way it is now.  
BC->CJ: Please make a decision if the report autopilot is either
supposed to behave MS interoperable (=keep the current behavior) or to
behave logical (change the current behavior). 

IMHO we should change the current solution because we expanded the
field selection page (the first page in the autopilot) by an
additional sorting  functionality represented by "Up" and "Down"
buttons that ease possibility to exactly determine the final field order.
Comment 8 christian.jansen 2003-09-11 17:11:10 UTC
CJ->BC: In my opinion we shall switch to the more logical solution.
Comment 9 berend.cornelius 2003-09-17 10:40:19 UTC
BC: I will implement it within the following two months
