Ribbon cable pin order

I'm struggling to understand the pin order on a ribbon cable.

I want to connect two boards (one main board with the MCU, the other one for the front panel to pots and buttons) and i need a 2x20 connector to connect the boards. I found on Mouser this connector but i can't find the related cable. I don't need to use that specific connector, it is just one that i found searching on Mouser.

On top of that, i need to understand what's the pin order using this cable. Basically how can I connect the two boards without swapping pins.
