Arranging multiple citations chronologically in a sentence

I inserted multiple citations in a sentence, but I have been unable to get the citations arranged in-text with the earlier citations coming first. I have tried using the "edit and manage citations and also tried to edit the sort order in the edit citation section.
I would appreciate any suggestions for overcoming this problem.
Thank you.

Which output style are you using?

Which sort option to you choose for Citation sort order in the output style? Year + Author? and did you then change the name of the changed output style (save as) and switch to the revision in the word document you are editing?

Hello Leanne,
I am using APA 7th edition output style. I chose the citation sort order of author + year, but did not change and save the new output style.
I have followed your directions and gotten the citation arrangement I would like.
Thank you so much.
