Specifies the secondary sort order for notes within containers (such as agents), based on an existing system or user attribute. In default sorting A-Z precedes a-z, thus the sort order Aardvark, Boy, aardvark [sic], though this can be altered by SortAlsoTransform which offers three choices of sort logic.

A secondary sort is useful where two notes have equal values under the main sort criterion. The primary sort is set via Sort.

If unsure of allowed target attribute on which to sort, the best place to set a sort is via the note's naming panel (Enter key). If exposed via KeyAttributes, the value pop-up will only show values already sorted on within the document.

To reverse the sort order based on the given attribute, use SortBackwardAlso.
