As you want to have it without sort activity use this expression in a assign activity

Dt = Dt.AsEnumerable().OrderBy(Function (row) Convert.ToInt32(row(“columnname”)).Select(Function (row) row).ToArray.CopyToDatatable()

For descending

Dt = Dt.AsEnumerable().OrderByDescending(Function (row) Convert.ToInt32(row(“columnname”)).Select(Function (row) row).ToArray.CopyToDatatable()

Hi @Shoebmd !

You can do the following, will leave some useful links below!

LINQ Queries “OrderBy” and “OrderByDescending”

Code (inside an assign activity)

var_dt.AsEnumerable.OrderBy(function(x) x("ColumnA")).CopyToDataTable

Code (inside an assign activity)

var_dt.AsEnumerable.OrderByDescending(function(x) x("ColumnA")).CopyToDataTable

This would give the following results:


OrderBy Info : OrderBy - Microsoft Doc
OrderByDescending Info: OrderByDescending - Microsoft Doc

Hope this helps!

In General WE can do

Assign Activity
Lhs: dtfiltered

(From d in yourdtvar.asenumerable
Order by d(“colA”).tostring, d(colB).toString Descending
Select r=d).copytodatable

As you Had No mentioned the colum Datatype, Maybe you have also to Concert. Bin this IS easyadopted

Writtenfrom cellohone, Just Cross hec the syntax

please give me exact linq query please

This is the expression that can be used

Use a assign activity and mention like this

dt = (From x In dt.AsEnumerable()
Order By x(“ColumnName-1”), x(“ColumnName-2”)
Select x).CopyToDataTable

dt is the datatable variable name

Cheers @Shoebmd

Updated above

Datataype is integer


Try below one

(From d in InputDT.AsEnumerable
Order by CInt(d(“colB”)) Descending, CInt(d(“colA”))
Select d).Copytodatable()
