I keep getting an error when trying to get data from an access database when I use the order by clause - ierrorinfo.getdescription failed.  Any ideas?

Perhaps if you posted your SQL and VB code, a solution could be more easily determined.

sql = "select * from tools where job = '5687568' order by position,number"
        Try
            With dbAdaptr
                Dim cmd As OleDb.OleDbCommand = New OleDb.OleDbCommand(sql, cn)
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
                .SelectCommand = cmd
                .Fill(ds, "tools")
            End With
        Catch ex As Exception
            Dim str As String = ex.Message
        End Try

Try putting "number" in brackets. "Number" is a reserved word (a data type name) in Access.

sql = "select * from tools where job = '5687568' order by position,[number]"

A number doesn't need commas (if it's a number) and also use kaufmed suggestion about the brackets
sql = "select * from tools where job = 5687568 order by [position],[number]"
