NOTE: Hide/Show commands do not create transformation steps. Hidden columns still exist in the output.
NOTE: When a column is hidden from a dataset, it is hidden for all users. You should check the column browser for hidden columns in shared datasets.
Sort: Sort the values in the column by ascending or descending value. This command does not apply to some data types.
When a column is sorted in ascending order, the bottom values are mismatched and null values, in that order. These values appear at the top of the column when sorted in descending order.
For more information, see Sort Rows.
