By reverse do you mean to sort them somehow, e.g. by date? How do you use the table?

If you want to sort the data and you want to show in a datagrid, then use a DataView between the table and the DataGrid. Then in the DataView set the Sort property to the column you want to sort after, e.g.:
dataView1.Sort = "StartDate DESC";
or
dataView1.Sort = "StartDate";
