I'm trying to compile publications lists in particular groupings using X7. I want to set the output style bibliography sort order to to move into word by reference type, then year.
Currently, they output by reference type, but this is alphabetically (e.g., book, book chapter, conference paper, creative work, generic...) and then by year in each group. However, I'm required to order them in specific groups (ie. books and editied books, book chapters, journals, conference proceedings, conference papers, reports, articles, creative works...) which are not alphabetical.

getting them in the order you want, means using another field with an "a" for books and edited books, , b for chapters, c for chaptes, etc in the order you need and sorting on that field. You can choose to use one of the unused custom fields, and need to name them in the Preferences, reference types, modify and add the name "sort" for example. Then you need to edit the output style to sort via this new field.
Not sure I know how to get header titles in there though. don't do this enough.

What you could do is to:
The resulting bibliography with categorized headers/references and sorted by year is shown in image 3.
