    Desired Outcome Goal:
    How to generate a list of all our subscriptions sorted by vendor?


    Procedure:
    (1) Run General Retrieval Form (acq-02-01) and search for “Subscription date (from)”/”Subscription date (to)” to find all according records (Please note that only the order records are searched and not the subscription records, so the date must be available in the order records)
    (2) In print template ./xxxnn/form_eng/order-info-report.xsl add a line for vendor sorting and afterwards run util i/6:

    <!--section-01 (FREE)-->

    <xsl:for-each select="//section-01">
    <xsl:call-template name="section-01"/>
    </xsl:for-each>

    <!--section-02 (GRID)-->

    <xsl:for-each select="//section-02">
    <xsl:sort select="data-2" order="ascending"/> <<< -----
    <xsl:if test="position() = 1">
    <xsl:call-template name="section-02">
    <xsl:with-param name="header" select="'header'"/>
    </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:call-template name="section-02"/>
    </xsl:for-each>
    </xsl:template>

    (3) Run Print Acquisition Records (acq-03) and select “Adm doc. No” and “Vendor”

    You’ll get a list sorted by vendors.

    Additional Information

    Please note that you have to reset ./xxxnn/form_lng/order-info-report.xsl for other lists. It is now adjusted that sorting is done for the 2. field which is selected from drop down list in Print Acquisition Records (acq-03).
