After you have selected a group, the grid displays a drilled down view, with the content grouped according to the selection.
You can click a blue link to filter grid data by the selected value. For example, if data is grouped by Code and you drill down on a particular code, the grid displays all messages for the selected code.

Enables sorting column values by Time, Code, Message, Host, Script, or Vuser. Enabled when None is selected in the Group by filter.
After selecting a sort value, the latest 50 messages are displayed on the page. You can scroll to see additional pages (each page displays the next 50 messages).
Click the sort order button to sort the selected column values in ascending or descending order.
