    Hi Omar,

    As per our understanding, your issue is related to how sorting is done when the data is grouped.
    When grouping is applied and the data is sorted by a column, the data is sorted first and then the groups are created. This means that the groups are not sorted according to the aggregate values instead they are sorted on the basis of the data.
    In the screenshot below, notice that the Sales column is sorted in descending order and the data inside the groups are sorted in descending order but not the groups itself.

    Let us know if this clears your doubts or otherwise.

    Yes this is the issue, i want "sales aggregate values" to be sorted descending
    So your example result should be as following: https://ibb.co/bXFpzJD

    You can use the sortConverter property of the CollectionView to convert the values to their individual aggregated values. Please refer to the sample link below:
