Thank you for your help, though it's not quite the right word, I think.

A query is when you search and filter the results by criteria. A sort is
when you put all the data in a specific order and save the order, though not
the data.

It may be called query in database terms, but if I use that here, I'm going
to have confused users, since query to them means to ask and get a more
specific answer.
