TABULAR BIDS Helper - Order of attributes in Display folders

Topics: Standing Discussions

When we set the properties for Display Folder in BIDS helper, few attributes (directly under root) with no parent folder appears directly below dimension name and the folders appear after these attrbutes.
What is expected:
Dimension Name
Folder (attributes under that)
Rootlevel attributes

How it is now
RootLevel attributes

The Display Folders feature is just about putting things in folders. It won't help with your sorting request unless you put those root level fields into a folder named appropriately so the folder sorts like you want. I don't know any other way.

Just to add to furmangg's reply, the sorting is usually controlled by the client tool itself and is not something that we can influence from BIDS Helper. You will find that different client tools sometime sort things differently. For example Excel 2013 shows things in a different order to SQL Management Studio...
