Greetings:

I have created a report in an Access 2007 database. My Report source SQL statement is below. In the attached screenshot, you can see that teh report is a listing of employees by Manager. The Manager field is being fed by the alias shown below. I want the Managers to sort ASC by the Manager's last name. I tried adding ASC to the statement below, with no luck. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

SELECT tbl_Employees.*, tbl_Managers.[Lname] & ", " & tbl_Managers.[Fname] AS MgrName
FROM tbl_Managers INNER JOIN tbl_Employees ON tbl_Managers.ID = tbl_Employees.ManagerID
ORDER BY tbl_Managers.Lname, tbl_Managers.Fname;

The sort order in the SQL statement is of no use.  You need to set up a Sort Order within your report.

Opent the report in design view, click the Group&Sort icon on the ribbon bar.

Click the Add a Sort button. then select the appropriate field from the dropdown list.

smsdesigns,

The steps below may help you achieve what you want for your report:

1. In Report Design View, Click the design tab
2. Select Group and Sort in Grouping and Totals Group
3. You can work around grouping and sorting in the Group, sort and Total window at the bottom part of the window.

Do hope those steps help you.

Sincerely,

Ed

you may need to include to your SQL statement the fields LName and FName


SELECT tbl_Employees.*, tbl_Managers.[Lname] & ", " & tbl_Managers.[Fname] AS MgrName, LName,FName
FROM tbl_Managers INNER JOIN tbl_Employees ON tbl_Managers.ID = tbl_Employees.ManagerID

Happens all the time.  

What I hate is when I start a response when there are no others posted, get sidetracked, and 30 minutes later complete my response and hit send, then see that 3 or 4 others have already posted the same response.
