Autonumber undoes sort in Access 2003 table

In Access 2003, I sort my table by product count such as 100 apple, 50 bananas, etc, I want to list my products by the most stock on hand first, I want to add a field that will count the rows. When I add an autonumber field and make it the primary key field, it undoes my product count field sort and makes the products with the least stock on hand first, rather than the way I had it. Is there some way to count the rows w/o undoing my sort?
