Your main sort is on Refdate - that's what you are getting.

If you want to sort on a calculated field then add the calculated field to the recordsource query and then it is available in the report as a standard field which you can sort.

That's not needed.

Your first sort is wrong. It is not the date but your grouping expression to sort on:

  =Format([refdate]-(([refdate]-2) Mod 7);"mmm dd")

The second sort is WEmployee.

gustav - Did you post the correct grouping expression? The only difference is the semi-colon which gives me an error: The expression you entered contains invalid syntax.

Use a comma.

But the difference is that you didn't use that expression in the report's grouping and sorting.
You use it the group header but that's not enough.
