Order by error

In the cod below I tried to order by a column name which works but when I tried to make it work using a URL variable it fails to sort. The recordset works but the sort is ignored.



$maxRows_WADAuser_usr = 500;
$pageNum_WADAuser_usr = 0;
if (isset($_GET['pageNum_WADAuser_usr'])) {
$pageNum_WADAuser_usr = $_GET['pageNum_WADAuser_usr'];
$startRow_WADAuser_usr = $pageNum_WADAuser_usr * $maxRows_WADAuser_usr;

$colparm_WADAuser_usr = "last_usr";
if (isset($_GET['sort'])) {
$colparm_WADAuser_usr = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_GET['sort'] : addslashes($_GET['sort']);
mysql_select_db($database_conn_ArtCards, $conn_ArtCards);
$query_WADAuser_usr = sprintf("SELECT U1.id_usr, U1.memb_typ_usr, L1.label_lbl AS Memb_type, U1.active_usr, L2.label_lbl AS Active, U1.title_usr AS TI, U1.first_usr, U1.last_usr, U1.email_usr, U2.company_usr AS BEN, U1.benifitCode_usr,U1.memb_typ_usr FROM user_usr U1 LEFT JOIN label AS L1 On memb_typ_usr=L1.value_lbl LEFT JOIN label AS L2 ON active_usr=L2.value_lbl LEFT JOIN user_usr U2 ON U1.benifitCode_usr = U2.id_usr WHERE L1.group_lbl=5 AND L2.group_lbl=20 ORDER BY %s", GetSQLValueString($colparm_WADAuser_usr, "text"));
$query_limit_WADAuser_usr = sprintf("%s LIMIT %d, %d", $query_WADAuser_usr, $startRow_WADAuser_usr, $maxRows_WADAuser_usr);
$WADAuser_usr = mysql_query($query_limit_WADAuser_usr, $conn_ArtCards) or die(mysql_error());
$row_WADAuser_usr = mysql_fetch_assoc($WADAuser_usr);

if (isset($_GET['totalRows_WADAuser_usr'])) {
$totalRows_WADAuser_usr = $_GET['totalRows_WADAuser_usr'];
} else {
$all_WADAuser_usr = mysql_query($query_WADAuser_usr);
$totalRows_WADAuser_usr = mysql_num_rows($all_WADAuser_usr);
$totalPages_WADAuser_usr = ceil($totalRows_WADAuser_usr/$maxRows_WADAuser_usr)-1;

try using the data assist sort behavior for this instead.

See the "Sorting by column links" tutorial in the solution recipes section of the data assist support page:
