I need the detail section to print by invoice due date:

Due in the next 7 days print first

Due over 7 days print second

Anything already overdue print last.


I have created 3 detail sections 

and for each section have added a visible expression:

=([ARInvoice.Status] = 'N') And (DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) > '0' And 
DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) < '8')


=([ARInvoice.Status] = 'N') And (DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) > '7')


=([ARInvoice.Status] = 'N') And (DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) <= '0')


however when I run the report it prints in the wrong order



I have also tried to do this as a group with the same result using a nested IIF statement and only 1 detail section.

=IIf( DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) > '0' And 
DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) < '8', [ARInvoice.DueDate],
IIf (DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) > '7',[ARInvoice.DueDate],
IIf (DateDiff('d', Today(),[ARInvoice.DueDate]) <= '0',[ARInvoice.DueDate],


Any help will be appreciated.

Hi @gauravsharma96! For this issue when you specify a grouping section, you can specify how that group sorts:

If you are needing to sort the detail section then you can specify how this sorts in the report printing screen or in the build schema:

Have you already tried using these sections?

You can either order them by DueDate in ascending or descending order, but you can’t have that particular order on the report. If I understand correctly you want:

  • Due in less than 7 days
  • Due in more than 8 days
  • Past Due

But that is not chronological… you could do:

  • Due in more than 8 days
  • Due in less than 7 days
  • Already past due.

If it’s very important for you to achieve this particular order you can use a subreport to do it.

Let me know and I can tell you how.

I have a version of you report that works with the alternate order if you want it.
