Either you can modify the sqladapter query with the order by statement, and when you update the dataset to the database, the new data in the ds will be sorted... or  read below...

You can't do it directly but you can use dataview to do sorting.
You can try the following code..

SqlConnection cn;
cn=new SqlConnection(ConnectionString);
cn.Open();
SqlDataAdapter da;
DataSet ds=new DataSet();
da=new SqlDataAdapter("select emp_id, fname, lname from employee",cn);
da.Fill(ds);

DataView dtView = ds.Tables[0].DefaultView;
dtView.Sort = "fname ASC";

DataGrid1.DataSource=dtView;
DataGrid1.DataBind();

I just double checked (reviewed the DS object) and it occurred to me why you will not be able to sort in the ds.  Sorting is a function of viewable data.  As you cannot view a DS directly, you will not be able to sort it's data unless the data is presorted via a query (in which case it is the Database which is doing the sorting not the DS) or sorted by a component designed to show the data.
