When running a report there is no ability to change the report sorting order. This function was available in the Windows Client reports.

For instance: when running the Aged Accounts Receivable report you could change the sorting to be Search Name rather No. which is more useful if using standard generated Customer numbers

I believe the old behaviour was that the sorting drop-down would be offered for any DataItem in which the developer had not specified a DataItemTableView sort order in code. That makes sense since if they do specify one, there's probably a reason, and if a user could override the developer's sort order it might break such reports.
(The other way is to do it with SetCurrentKey() in OnPreDataItem(), and that'd still show the sorting drop-down, but then the code would override it...)

Indeed, please give us this option back as it was well working in the RTC-versions. Please foresee such sorting for all customer / vendor reports.

To change the sort order is very important to us too! We had to find a huge workaround, which is quite complex and not efficient. Would be great, if this idea could be implemented not only long term, but short term! Thank you.
