OK I have a component which has a method which returns an

id
Staffid,
Roleid,

From this i can call another method to return the staff name using the staff id.

I would like to order the recordset by the staff name. Is there anyway this can be done?

You could structure the SQL statement to take that into account or you could use the Sort function of ADO.  Your statement would look like this:

SELECT ID, StaffID, RoleID from <TableNameHere> Order By StaffID

Or if you cannot do this for whatever reason use:

rs.Sort "StaffID ASC<Or DESC>"

Be aware that if you use the latter you must use a static, Client Side Cursor on your recordset.  I use this all of the time with disconnected recordsets so that I can change the order that information that appears in lists and combo boxes.  A disconnected recordset also conserves network resources.

I can't amend the SQL statement (stored procedure) at this time.

I'm also aware of the sort method but this will only help for the id. I want ot sort on staffname, which is not in the original recordset.

>>rs.Sort "StaffID ASC<Or DESC>"

rs.Sort="StaffID ASC<Or DESC>"

If this is a read only recordset, you can

Disconnect the recordset (Set ActiveConnection = nothing)
Add a field to the fields collection or the recordset.

Loop through the recordset and for each record
  Run your process to get the staff name for each id
  set the value of your new field to the staff name

Sort on the new field.

The simple approach is, of course, to modify the original sql to return that value, but if that is not an option...

strsql = "select d,staffid, rollid, staffname from [tablea]

inner join [tableb] on [tablea].staffid = [tableb].staffid


order by staffname
