          Halim,

           

          This happens if the set does not contain any information in it. Right click on Set 1 (in the Data Pane) and choose Edit. Within the General Tab, if there is nothing checked (selected), the Manual option will not work as there is no available values to manually sort.

           

          In the image below, nothing is checked so nothing can be sorted.

           

          Regards,

            Hi,

            I checked the list but it looks like there are some boxes already checked to make a manual sort but the manual sort button still not active. Thanks for your respond.

              Halim,

               

              If the earlier suggestion did not correct the problem and you are still having issues, would you be able to post a packaged workbook that displays this problem? It might be easier to determine the problem if I see exactly what you are seeing.

               

              Regards,
