Hi All,
 I would like to collect all the rows of a small MS Access database in the order that they are listed in the database. I am using JDBC in JSP pages.

My SQL statement is simple:
"SELECT * from NavTable"

Unfortunately, the recordset does not return the rows in the same order.  

Everything is re-arranged.

What can I do?
TIA DoughBoy

You need to tell your SELECT statement the specific order you wish it to return in, eg SELECT * FROM navtable ORDER BY field1, field2 ...

If you are not able to sort by fields and you you want data entry order then there is no way you can get this as the table stands. You can create an AutoNumber field and this will work with new tables.

Cheers, Andrew
