How do you assign your table to the dao-recordset ?
Otherwise you can give it a order by clause when you open your recordset:

rs.open "select * from yourTable order by YourField"

well, i'm using the opendatabase function of the database object to open the recordset and set it to the record set object as follows:

set data_rs = data_db.opendatabase("database name", "table name, dbOpenTable)

no sorting option in here!!!
:(
