    Description:
    Is it possible to add an author sort to the course doc list?

    Currently we only see:
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE L Course 03---A02- --D
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE L Title 05---A02- --D
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE L Open Date 08---A02- --D

    Resolution:
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE - controls sorting of the reading list. These values should match the values in XXX30/tab/tab_sort.

    With your current settings in XXX50/tab/pc_tab_exp_field.eng of:
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE L Course 03---A02---D
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE L Title 05---A02---D
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE L Open Date 08---A02---D

    and XXX30/tab/tab_sort
    !1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 12 13 4 15 16 7 18 9
    !!-!!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!-!!
    01 008 08 04
    02 CNO-1 a 00 00
    03 CNO-3 a 00 00
    04 CNO-5 a 00 00
    05 245## a 2 240## 00 00
    06 100## a 110## a 111## a 130## a 700## a 00 00
    07 CNO a 00 00
    08 ODATE a 00 00

    you are saying to sort the
    - course by CNO-3 ascending and CNO-1 descending
    - 245 ascending and CNO-1 descending
    - ODATE ascending and CNO-1 descending.

    If you added the following to XXX50/tab/pc_tab_exp_field.eng and restarted the PC server you would see an additional sort option:
    COURSE-DOC-SORT-TYPE L Author 06---A02---D
