Determining "rank" can be sticky in some situations if duplicate values can occur in the value(s) used to rank the records. Since this is not the case here a summary field can be used to display the correct rank when the values are sorted in this fashion.
Define a summary field, sRank and select the Count of, Page_ID options. Then select "running count", "Restart Summary for each sorted group" and select the table where you'ved defined these fields in the drop down and Page_ID as the "group by" field.
When you sort your records as you've specified here, sRank will display the proverb_Rank you've requested.
