Could someone explain what "Then by" is applied to?

An example should be fine

Thanks,

S.

Hi,


I've searched the whole source code and it seems it's never used.

Hi,

This is for the spreadsheet Sort dialog. Sorting cells in the spreadsheet is difficult and is not ready yet, so properties for the dialog were entered in advance. "Then by" will be used together with the phrase "Sort by" to specify the sorting order. "Then by" refers to a second sort key. The dialog will appear as follows:


Sort by: <drop down list of column names>

Then by: <drop down list of column names>


See also the options given by sort dialogs in Excel or Google Docs.


cheers,

George
