SOQL ORDER BY Clause : In our previous salesforce tutorial we have learned about SOQL logical operators in salesforce. In this Salesforce Training tutorial we are going to learn about ORDER BY clauses called “ASC”. and “DESC”.
What is SOQL ORDER BY Clause ?
ORDER BY Clause is used to retrieve the data in “Ascending” or “Descending” order by the condition given in SOQL Statement.
In salesforce ORDER BY clause are two types. They are
Here ASC means ascending and DESC means descending order. In SOQL by default the data will be retrieved in ascending order only.
