Ordering Column orders in Matrix (Columns are a two level hierarchy, so order on subcategory)

Hi all,


So I have created an order column, and sorted the table by that column. This causes the Matrix to be correct if I drop the relevant field into the column.


An example to make this clearer, Imagine the field was Country, which is being ordered by a custom column. Country has been dropped into the column field and this has worked fine.


However, when I drop the hiearchy in:

Region and Country, as I want to display the region and Countries associated under it.. the arranagement is now based on Region or random?


How can I sort this out?


Thank you,
