Error description

  • There is a limitation in using IBM Rational Publishing Engine
    (RPE) template sort.  If the data is exposed in multiple pages,
    the output will not be sorted as expected, because the data will
    be sorted in pages.  Thus, the first page of data will be
    sorted, then the second page of data will be sorted, and so on,
    instead of the data as a whole being sorted.
    
    Workarounds:
    1. Use the native application providing the data to do the
    sorting -- for example, by creating a sorted view.  This is the
    recommended workaround.
    2. Increase the page size such that all your data fits into one
    page.  This workaround can impact performance.
