Can I sort results of Proc Tabulate by an outcome rather than by Class

I do not want my output table from Proc Tabulate to be sorted by the CLASS variable, but rather in descending order of the computed mean value for one of the output variables. Is there  a way to easily do this? I am feeding the Proc Tabulate table into a custom report and everything is set fiormatting wise. It's just that I do not want the table ordered by the CLASS variable (location) but by the actual average grade that was calculated per location.

I don't know if it's possible (I don't think so), but if you gave an example of your data and/or desired output, it might help others to provide you some kind of alternative. Based on how you describe the issue, I would think proc report with some kind of pre summarization might get you what you want.
