HI @MarshalSK 

You are looking for Sub Category wise sort within each category
Please create a lookup table with the below format

SubCategory SortBy
A1
B2
C3
D4

Click on Sub Category column and change Sort to SortBy Column
Now Create a relationship with the main table and with SubCategory column
Use SubCategory from the lookup table

Almost the same steps as screenshot mentioned in this solution

Hi @MarshalSK 

The image you shared is already sorted by Category in ASC order. You can update the sort order by clicking 3 dots top right side matrix table.
If you are looking for custom sort, please find the steps
