I am writing a sub to build continuous forms using Access 2003 and ADO.

This code works, but returns the columns in alphabetical order...

    Set cat = New ADOX.Catalog
    Set col = New ADOX.Column        
    cat.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection
     For Each col In cat.Tables(strRecordSource).Columns
        Code to build Textboxes and Labels...

     Next col

strRecordSource refers to any named Table or Query

How do you get the columns to appear in the same order as they are in strRecordSource?
