    Order by "THIS", and sort from z-a


    I have the order part, now how would I sort the column "out1" from z-a?

    <table style="width: 134%; height: 137px">	<tr>
    	<div id="pageMiddle" style="clear:left; line-height:1.5em; width:92%; margin:40px auto;">
    		<td style="width: 387px">
    		<td style="width: 628px">
            <p>Sorts by out first (No, Yes), Then by name.</p><br>
            <p><b>View All</b> | <a href="view-paginated.php">View Paginated</a> | <a href="records.php">New Record</a></p>
                            // connect to the database
                            // get the records from the database
                            if ($result = $mysqli->query("SELECT * FROM equipment ORDER BY out1,name"))
                                    // display records if there are records to display
                                    if ($result->num_rows > 0)
                                            // display records in a table
                                            echo "<table border='1' cellpadding='10' class='db-table'>";
                                            // set table headers
                                            echo "<tr><th>ID</th><th>Name</th><th>Type</th><th>Out</th><th>Outbywho</th><th>Status</th><th></th><th></th></tr>";
                                            while ($row = $result->fetch_object())
                                                    // set up a row for each record
                                                    echo "<tr>";
                                                    echo "<td>" . $row->id . "</td>";
                                                    echo "<td>" . $row->name . "</td>";
                                                    echo "<td>" . $row->type . "</td>";
                                                    echo "<td>" . $row->out1 . "</td>";
                                                    echo "<td>" . $row->outbywho . "</td>";
                                                    echo "<td>" . $row->stat . "</td>";
                                                    echo "<td><a href='records.php?id=" . $row->id . "'>Edit</a></td>";
                                                    echo "<td><a href='delete.php?id=" . $row->id . "'>Delete</a></td>";
                                                    echo "</tr>";
                                            echo "</table>";
                                    // if there are no records in the database, display an alert message
                                            echo "No results to display!";
                            // show an error if there is an issue with the database query
                                    echo "Error: " . $mysqli->error;
                            // close database connection

    ORDER BY out1 DESC (desc sorts by descending order.)
