Ordering object files when linkng using Visual C++ 5.0.

I am a newbie trying to use Visual C++. I am trying to order a set of object files so that a_1.obj is followed by all the other object files being linked. I also want to specify the last object file a_n.obj.  So the linked image should look like the following:
a1.obj, a2.obj, a3.obj, ... a_n-1.obj, a_n.obj.

If I were to use a Makefile, I could do the following:
link a_1.obj $(OBJ) a_n.obj, where OBJ=a2.obj ... a_n-1.obj

How do I specify that to the builder?

Why do you need this?
Anyway, try to remove all source file from the project and add them again to the project (selecting each time only one file) in the desired order.
