Problems with sorting by column headers

Problems with sorting by column headers

My page was working fine, until I added the sorting per this tutorial:

This is not the live page ... I copied the page before adding the sorting server behavior. Please see PM because I removed the security from this page so you don't have to log in.

There is no error on the live site, but when I browse the file locally, I get this:

Notice: Undefined variable: WADAusers in C:\xampp\htdocs\numeroset\edit_acct.php on line 56

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getColumnVal() on null in C:\xampp\htdocs\numeroset\edit_acct.php:56 Stack trace: #0 {main} thrown in C:\xampp\htdocs\numeroset\edit_acct.php on line 56

$sortWADAusers_1 = new WA_MySQLi_Sort("WADAusers","",false);
if ((((isset($_GET["sort"]))?$_GET["sort"]:"") != "")) {
$sortWADAusers_1->setSort("".($WADAusers->getColumnVal("acct_number")) ."","ASC",true,true);

Line 56: $sortWADAusers_1->setSort("".($WADAusers->getColumnVal("acct_number")) ."","ASC",true,true);

The sorting is working now, but as soon as the pagination starts, the sort is lost. How can I keep the pagination working AND keep the sort order working along with it?

Thank you.
