11G Graphs and Pivot Table Are Forcing An Ascending Sort By Default When No Sorting Is Applied In The Layout
Last updated on DECEMBER 20, 2016
Applies to:BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 188.8.131.52.2 to 184.108.40.206.x [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When you upgrade from BI Publisher 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168.2 BP1, the graphs and pivot table are forcing an ascending sort by default even if no sorting is applied in the layout (the data is already sorted in the query so it needs to be displayed in the original order). The behavior is only noticed when you run the report for the Interactive output . While editing the layout and when using the interactive preview the results are sorted as intended.
This problem does not show up in BI Publisher version 22.214.171.124 but only in version 126.96.36.199.2
Upgrade from BI Publisher 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206.2 BP1
