Re-order table columns with dynamic names?

Hello,

I have a chart with dynamic field names displayed as table and would like to change the order of the columns:

 

 

Name     Season 1     Season 2     Season 3
Name1    10000        11111        22222
Name2    9999         9997         9998
Name3    7777         5555         6666

 

 

How can I change the order of the columns? The number of Seasons is flexible and it should always start with the latest one -> Name  Season3  Season2  Season1

Is it possible to get more control over the sorting? There are more columns which I omitted in my original question.

Sort of non-numeric fields is done lexicographically. It can be ascending or descending. If you want the columns sorted another way, you may have to add another field, possibly based on the name, which can then be sorted by, and then removed.
