VB Datagrid sort by column

I have an adodc which connects to an access database and a record source of a query in access.
The datagrid connects to the adodc and displays the query.

What I want to do is when a user clicks on the column headings the datagrid sorts into alphabetical order.

I found this code on another post:

Private Sub DataGrid1_HeadClick(ByVal ColIndex _
     As Integer)
Dim sortField As String
Dim sortString As String

sortField = DataGrid1.Columns(ColIndex).Caption
If InStr(rst.Sort, "Asc") Then
     sortString = sortField & " Desc"
Else
     sortString = sortField & " Asc"
End If
rst.Sort = sortString
End Sub

but when I run it I get a run time error object required on the line
If InStr(rst.Sort, "Asc") Then

Could someone please suggest a step by step solution
to this problem?

Everywhere you see rst, you need to replace it with the name of your adodc like this: adodc1.recordset

Method or data member not found when it gets to .Sort

Private Sub DataGrid1_HeadClick(ByVal ColIndex _
     As Integer)
Dim sortField As String
Dim sortString As String

sortField = DataGrid1.Columns(ColIndex).Caption
If InStr(Adodc1.Sort, "Asc") Then
     sortString = sortField & " Desc"
Else
     sortString = sortField & " Asc"
End If
Adodc1.Sort = sortString
End Sub

you also need to specify the Recordset object: adodc1.recordset.sort
