sorting

Hi I have a report which gives the user the ablility to choose the sort order. So i have created a paremeter with ANIMa,Group and Cage values. And wrote a formula

if ucase({?Sortfield}) = 'ANIMAL' then
{@Animal_Sort}
else if ucase({?Sortfield}) = 'Group' then
{@group_no}
else if ucase({?Sortfield}) = 'CAGE'
then totext({RPT_INLIFE_OBSERVATION.CAGE_NUMBER},0,'')

and created a group with this formula and it works fine till this level.

if the user selects Animal,
the report should be first grouped by ************,then by group # and finally Animal.
if the user selects Group,
the report should be first grouped by group #,then by ************ and finally Animal.

So i have created another formula and have a sub group an this formula and this also works fine.
My prob here is our co., wants to see Males first and then Females.I can't change the order in the group as if i do not, when the report is grouped on Group # , it will show as 4,3,2,1 as against 1,2,3,4'
Can anyone pl., throw light on this.
Thanks,
Kavitha.

Go into the Sort Expert and add the gender field to the bottom of the list on the right. This will mean that the group ordering is done first and then within each group, the data will be sorted by gender.

Let me know if this helps
