Default sort option for numeric column in a table

I have a number of users who are requesting to be able to sort a numeric column in descending order.  I know that if you click on it it will sort ascending - click again and it will then sort descending.  Apparently, two click is proving to be too much of a chore for mu users (!!!), and despite all the other functionality and information that is being delivered to them in VA - I keep getting asked if the default sort option can be descending [note that the table in question is sorted by date as the default setting - it is the user interaction that I am requesting, i.e. when being viewed and not edited].

I cant find any setting to do this and I have a feeling that this option is not available.  Does anyone know anything about this?

Thanks

No.  I'm looking for multiple column sorting a table interactively.  For instance, year and month.  Know if that exists?

You should be able to sort mulitple columns by holding down the CTRL key and then clicking the column headers in the sort priority order.

Thanks. The click order to set priority is the key.
