Try this:

ORDER BY CAST(YouDateTimeField AS sql_variant)

Open in new window

If you have the data as Date/Time format it will sort correctly. If you have your data as text it will not sort correctly.

But simply using ORDER BY should work...

It displays:

2002-11-01 07:35:09.000
2002-11-01 09:35:19.000
2002-11-01 11:35:10.000

Isn't this what you expect?
