how to access DataTable rows, as ordered by DefaultView?

I am not able to influence the construction of a certain DataTable.  To display it's contents, I set an "order by" clause into table1.DefaultView.Sort.  Everything is good in the gui (asp.net DataGrid), but I am having trouble accessing the records programmatically in that same sorted order.

Is there a way to actually sort the records in the DataTable?

Thanks for any help-

no the DefaultView is just a view!... to get the records ordered in the table you need to order in the source

Found it, could also use for each:

        Dim v As DataView = table1.DefaultView
        While i < v.Count - 1
            Dim row As DataRowView = v.Item(i)
            Dim val As String = row("ColumnName")
            'etc.
        End While
