Change Column Order in Datasheet View

Hello Experts!

In my subform, I added an unbound text box.  Right now, the order of my fields are...

ID - Occasion ID - Occasion - Delete?

But what I would like is...

Delete? - ID - Occasion ID - Occasion

How can I get my "Delete?" column (the unbound text box) moved to the very beginning, instead of it being shown at the end?

Hopefully there is an easy fix for this.
