Am wondering... If I have a subform that is in datasheet view, is it possible to sort by a given column just by clicking on the column's header/title (rather than right-clicking and selecting Sort Ascending)?

Here's my handy-dandy way to simulate an Excel spreadsheet in a subform, which has command buttons that let you sort columns

Hope this helps.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Jim,

The subform in question is based on a query that pulls data from two different tables.  Even just using the built-in sort function, it balks at me ("The column prefix doesn't match with a table name...").  Is subform's query-based nature an issue that would prevent your solution from working?

Hello Galisteo8

I also have an answer to this somewhere on this site (^v^)

Check out {http:/Q_21612585.html#15186788}, it uses the actual column headers as buttons to perform a sort on that column.

Cheers!

Posting to keep this thread open for a bit longer.  Issue not yet resolved.
I still need to check out Harfang's URL.

Thanks!

Adding this sorting "feature" has been delayed due to other issues.  However, I do vow to get back to it.

Been off this project for almost a month due to sick time with family.
I apologize for the delay in resolution.
Will be back on it within a couple of weeks, hopefully.

I did not realize that so much time had passed.  I am only just now getting back to this project, but am inclined to close any outstanding questions on this and some other related issues while I get back into the groove of things (e.g. figure out project status).

I am very sorry for letting this question linger without resolution. I'll put in a close request.  As I move forward on this project, I'm sure this issue will pop up again in some way; I'll start a new question if/when that happens.

Thanks to everyone who chipped in previously.  Please accept my apologies.
