Hi!

I just want to ask how can I sort the content of a DATABOUND Combo box (i.e. Alphabetically). Since the index of the combo box is the code link to the base table which is sorted ASCENDING BY CODE what should I do to sort the DESCRIPTION that populate in a DBCOMBO box control.

Thanks in Advance.

You have to do your select as following

Select YouCode, YouDescription from YourTable Ascending by YouDescription

Youd Combo will be sorted by the description. The related code doesn't need to be sorted.
