Before our built-in sort order became available, we did have some Customer self-created sort order suggestions that work quite well:

If you precede your text with a number,

NUMERIC, two digits, such as:

01.  Discrepancy 1 description here

02.  Discrepancy 2 description here

03.  Discrepancy 3 description here

and so on.

Or ALPHA NUMERIC, two digits, such as:

01a.  Discrepancy 1a description here

01b.  Discrepancy 1b description here

02a.  Discrepancy 2a description here

02b. Discrepancy 2b description here

and so on.

Feel free to experiment and name each line as you’d like.
