How can I sort the items in a DataCombo box.  There is no "Sorted" property like there is for a standard combo box.  Am I overlooking a simple thing to do this?

since it is a data bounded control if you want it sorted you should have it linked to a field that is sorted via an sql statement.

As Azra states set your recordset Source to read something like..

SELECT * FROM MyTable
ORDER BY MyField Asc

-or-

Desc for Descending.

I had the combobox linked to a table that I am using, but I can also create a query to do what I need for the combobox.
Thanks for the suggestions.
