I have a ssrs report that is grouped by cust#.
Each cust# totals shows on 1 line of the report.
Right now, if user wants to sort column A (total AR $), they have to wait for the report to be built then click the little Interactive sort icon.

Is there a way on a report grouped by cust# to have column A automatically sorted in ascending sequence without user having to click the column sort icon.

The report must still be built grouped by cust#,  but have the report automatically be sorted by Column A (descending).

Open the Tablix properties, locate the Sorting page and add the column on which you'd like to data to be sorted.  You data will remain grouped and within each group the sorting will happen on the column(s) specified, in ascending or descending order (can be specified as well).
