I created a report called "Phone List".
I have tried the following to make the report sort ascending by last name but still not sorting:

1. Query to sort ascending
2. Sort function on the report


To see the report open application and click Reports > Phone List

Any sorting you set in the query is overruled by the sorting in the report. Therefore sorting should always be done in the report.

In the report, you were sorting by ER_Name_Relation first, and THEN by Last name. If you move the LastName to be first sort criteria, I believe you will get what you want.
