2136053 - Sort order of the first column in the Prepare room appears to be out of order with the new calculation engine


  • Lumira 1.23 has a newer / different calculation engine from older versions of Lumira (1.22 and earlier)
  • Ordering of data in columns may look different


  • SAP Lumira Desktop 1.23

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Lumira 1.23 running Velocity, open up a .lums file with a sorted first column
  2. Switch to the Prepare room
  3. Sorting of data in first column may appear different than previous versions of Lumira
  4. First column may have appeared to be sorted when using older versions of Lumira


  • This is SAP Standard Design.
  • Lumira does not explicitly sort columns
  • Sorting in previous versions of Lumira may have appeared sorted
  • The new calculation engine in Lumira 1.23 will make columns appear to be sorted differently
