You can look at the answers of this question at this link : Mendix Forum - Question Details . I don’t know if that’s what you want to achieve.
You can choose the sort order type on going to structure mode on your page :
You can use Xpath constraints in Retrieval activity to restrict the data you are retrieving. It should look like this.
[createdDate < 'your date']
Or if you do not want to touch the retrieval, you can use Filter by expression in List operation like below,
$currentObject/createdDate < parseDateTime('','')
Hope this helps.
