When query results contain a work item that you do not have required permissions to view, the cells of that work item are blank, except that the work item ID appears, and the title cell indicates <<no access>>.

When you sort a work item list that contains no-access rows, those rows sort as if their cells were blank. For example, if you sort by State, each no-access row appears at the top of the list. This rule applies to the Title field also. If you sorted by Title, no-access rows appear at the top of the list even though the title appears as <<no access>>. The exception to this rule is that, if you sort by work item ID, no-access rows appear in the expected sequence.
