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.

Brandon
