    Question How hard can it be to sort MDX descending - help please

    Hello,
    In SQL I just put "Order By {whateverfield}" at the end my statement, but in MDX I just can't work it out.

    I know about "ORDER" and the DESC or BDESC, but can't fit it into the following without breaking it or it having no effect:
    Code:
    WITH 
        MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterCaption] 
        AS[Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CURRENTMEMBER.MEMBER_CAPTION 
        MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterValue] 
        AS [Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CURRENTMEMBER.UNIQUENAME 
        MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterLevel] 
        AS [Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CURRENTMEMBER.LEVEL.ORDINAL 
    SELECT   
        {
    	  ORDER( [Measures].[ParameterCaption], DESC), 
    	  [Measures].[ParameterValue], 
    	  [Measures].[ParameterLevel]
        } 
        ON COLUMNS 
    ,
        [Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CHILDREN 
        ON ROWS 
    FROM 
        (   SELECT 
    		  ( { [Head Count].[Employee Status Code (H)].[Employee Status Code].&[A] } ) 
    		  ON COLUMNS 
    	   FROM 
    		  [Fact Head Count]
        )
    All I want to do is sort the following results on the ParameterCaption column descending.

    Cool Add the ORDER on the ROWS and don't forget the measure

    Turns out to be easy as I found out myself after a night's sleep:
    Code:
    WITH 
        MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterCaption] 
        AS[Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CURRENTMEMBER.MEMBER_CAPTION 
        MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterValue] 
        AS [Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CURRENTMEMBER.UNIQUENAME 
        MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterLevel] 
        AS [Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CURRENTMEMBER.LEVEL.ORDINAL 
    SELECT   
        {
    	  [Measures].[ParameterCaption], 
    	  [Measures].[ParameterValue], 
    	  [Measures].[ParameterLevel]
        } 
        ON COLUMNS 
    ,
        Order(	  [Financial Date].[Short Year-Month (H)].CHILDREN, 
    	  	  [Measures].[ParameterValue]  , 
    	  	  DESC
    	     )
        ON ROWS 
    FROM 
        (   SELECT 
    		  ( { [Head Count].[Employee Status Code (H)].[Employee Status Code].&[A] } ) 
    		  ON COLUMNS 
    	   FROM 
    		  [Fact Head Count]
        )
    Result:
