Sales Order Status – uses the sales order status to group change orders
Change Order Status – sorts by the change order status
Sales Person – puts change orders attributed to a particular sales order salesperson together

Note: You can choose up to three sort/summarize options. The change orders will be sorted in the order you select the checkboxes. So if you clicked Customer first and then Sales Order Status, the change orders would be first sorted by the customer name. Then any change orders for that customer will be sorted by the status of the sales order. However, if you clicked the Sales Order Status before the Customer checkbox, the list would be sorted by Date, with customer groups second.
