  • Items within the same category are sorted in ascending order by item number.
  • The 'Group' field can be used to change the sorting of items within the same 'Category'. For example, if three items are in the 'General use Binders' category in ascending order by item number, the Group field can be used to change the sequence of the three items by entering a '1' in the item that should appear first, a '2' for the item that should be second and a '3' for the item that should be third.
