I have a dataset.  One of the columns is "DIRECTORPositionheld".  I need to move the row where DIRECTORPositionheld = "President" to the top of this dataset, before I bind it to a datalist object.

right now the sql that I'm using to fill the dataset is :
"SELECT * FROM DIRECTOR"
If I use :
"SELECT * FROM DIRECTOR ORDER BY DIRECTORPositionheld"
it will put the accountant above the director above the  president above the treasurer .  What sql would I use to place the president at the top?
