If you want to order based on several columns, you either need to use order by column1 asc, column2.
Alternatively, you might need to group the item in the select (column1 + ' ' + clomn2 ) as newColumn order by newColumn.

If not you will have to use dynamic SQL. so the logic you need in your sp should look like this

declare @strSQL varchar(2000)
 
set @strSQL = 'select field1, field2 from yourtable order by StreetName ' + @sortOrder
 
exec(@strSQL)

Open in new window
