Sorting by columns is the functionality that we have been long time waiting for. This is pretty expected functionality, but we are still a long wait.

Now in NAV2013R2, we finally get this. And it works perfect. I try it on big data and it work quickly. Never mind am I sort by code, decimal, text or other field types, it works excellent.

Functionality is user friendly. You only need to press right-click on column and choose sorting model – Ascending or Descending. Also, you can press left-click on column and you will get Ascending by this field; secon click and you will get Descending by this field...

After you make sort, you have little triangle to know sorting is done by it field. Triangle can be directed to the up or down (Ascending or Descending).
