The Sorter transformation contains only input/output ports. All data passing through the Sorter transformation is
sorted according to a sort key. The sort key is one or more ports that you want to use as the sort criteria.

You can specify more than one port as part of the sort key. When you specify multiple ports for the sort key, the
Integration Service sorts each port sequentially. The order the ports appear in the Ports tab determines the
succession of sort operations. The Sorter transformation treats the data passing through each successive sort key
port as a secondary sort of the previous port.

At session run time, the Integration Service sorts data according to the sort order specified in the session
properties. The sort order determines the sorting criteria for special characters and symbols.
