CostGuard has up to five sorting options for Inventory Reports. Each Inventory Report has some combination of the five, depending on the type of data in the Report. CostGuard uses Sorting to order the Inventory Items. You can change this option each time you run a report. If the screen is gray, then that sort option is not available for that particular report.
