Hi

Every time I add a record to a table (shown in a DBGRid), I want the table and the grid to sort itself based on the value in one of the fields (an integer) - anyone give me the best way of doing this.

Thanks.

The best way to do this would be to index the Integer field and then set the IndexFieldsName property of the TTable to it.  If you are useing a TQuery you can put an ORDER BY in your SELECT statment to sort them too.

make Index Files =) (use Database Desktop to do them permanant)
 .. eg On Index File by Name or By Address etc.
eg.. in your code use this :

Table1.Open;
Table1.IndexName := 'code'; (sorts by code)

It also speed up all your database functions =) (like search)
