How to: Sort Data by Grand Totals

This example shows how to sort data by Grand Total values.

In this example, values of the Sales Person field are sorted by the Grand Total column. To do this, the data field by whose values the sorting should be performed (the Order Amount field) is assigned to the Sales Person field's PivotGridField.SortByField property.
