I have the following query that returns the last 12 months of data:

SELECT TOP 12 pk_AssetsID, TheYear, TheMonth, TheValue, Colour, fk_fundID
FROM         AssetsUnderManagement
 WHERE fk_FundID = 1
ORDER BY TheYear DESC, TheMonth DESC

And returns the following recordset:

pk_AssetsID TheYear TheMonth TheValue    Colour     fk_fundID  
----------- ------- -------- ----------- ---------- -----------
25          2006    10       1142        &H00A0BA   1
24          2006    9        1166        &H00A0BA   1
23          2006    8        1137        &H00A0BA   1
11          2006    7        1066        &H00A0BA   1
12          2006    6        970         &H00A0BA   1
13          2006    5        836         &H00A0BA   1
5           2006    4        672         &H00A0BA   1
14          2005    12       367         &H00A0BA   1
15          2005    11       315         &H00A0BA   1
16          2005    10       257         &H00A0BA   1
17          2005    9        193         &H00A0BA   1
18          2005    8        130         &H00A0BA   1

But I need the results to be returned in the reverse order.  I can't change the ORDER BY clause as since it's returning the last 12 months it'd return the oldest 12 months.

Any ideas?

What about this:
SELECT *
FROM  (
SELECT TOP 12 pk_AssetsID, TheYear, TheMonth, TheValue, Colour, fk_fundID
FROM         AssetsUnderManagement
 WHERE fk_FundID = 1
ORDER BY TheYear DESC, TheMonth DESC
)
ORDER BY TheYear ASC, TheMonth ASC
