My form uses no data control but instead binds the controls through the command object created in the Data Environment. Using one or more "sort by" combo box values off the form I would like to filter the underlying recordset the form is bound to. Can I change the command text for the current instance of the command object and have all data binding remain in tact?..or another aproach? What is the smart way to accomplish this?

You can, you just need to refresh the command object that you have changed the source of. This should maintain the binding, though for certainty I would also refresh any bound component to ensure that it has updated itself to any changes.

Once you change the filter you could try setting the datasources back to your dataenvironment...
this might do the trick.

Set Text1.datasource = Dataenvironment1

loop through all controls or one by one.
