Why Is My Paging Combination Not Working?

When using multiple properties in paging, the effect has to be to have to create logical subgroups of each other, otherwise the page combination will not be effective.

  • Paging is in effect a form of filtering, and the ability to page on multiple properties depends on whether those paging elements can work together.
  • Function and descendent are an example where this is not possible.
  • When paging by function, the logical grouping [page] will contain only the members of that function.
  • When paging by descendant, the logical grouping [page] will contain descendants of the individual, regardless of function.
  • In this instance, the effect is to filter by function, and then undo the filter: this is why it is not possible to filter on both Function and Descendant.
