Quick Sort Button Unresponsive When Multiple Instances of Aggregate on Shelf

When there are multiple instances of an aggregate on the Rows or Columns shelf, the Quick Sort button may become stuck on a descending sort.

  • Windows 10


Instead of using two instances of the same aggregate on the Rows or Columns shelf, create a duplicate field and add the duplicate field to the view, as shown in the sample workbook.


The presence of two or more instances of an identical aggregate, for example "SUM([Sales])", on the Rows or Columns shelf causes the Quick Sort button to get stuck on descending sort, for all but the last row or column.

This issue is related to a known issue, ID 786097, which is currently under investigation.
