Default Sorting on a Data Grid

I must be missing something very simple but I can’t get default sorting of the data grid to work.  I have the Sort order set to a date field descending (as shown in screenshot below.)  My datasource comes from xpath.   When I run the app there is no sort on the grid.  I can click any column and it will sort but I want the initial load of the grid to be sorted by most recent date. What am I missing?

Maybe you have the wrong name. Your column named FundedDate shows the attribute SoloFundedDate. Is FundedDate perhaps hidden elsewhere, or empty?
