Data.Datarow Sort

I am a VB 6.0 programmer just getting my feet wet in a .NET app that I inherited, so have alot of questions that you will probably seeing this next week!

There is a form that has a ComboBox, and I found the code that is loading the DropDown, but I need the items sorted by another Field named "SortValue"

Here is the code the other person had in there.  I tried to put a ORDER BY behind the line that sets the foundRows = .

That didn't work, and not sure where to place it:

    Sub PopulateDropDown(ByVal parmTypeCodeGroupName As String, ByVal parmControl As ComboBox)
        Dim foundRows() As Data.DataRow
        Dim typeCodeItem As DataRow
        Dim i As Integer
        Try
            parmControl.Text = ""
            'foundRows = _7thwaveDataSet.Tables("TypeCodeGroupName").Select("TypeCodeGroupName Like '" + parmTypeCodeGroupName + "'")
            foundRows = _7thwaveDataSet.Tables("TypeCodeGroupName").Select("TypeCodeGroupName Like '" + parmTypeCodeGroupName + "'") 'group id = 25
            For i = 0 To foundRows.Length - 1
                typeCodeItem = foundRows(i)
                parmControl.Items.Add(typeCodeItem.Item("TypeCodeName").ToString)
            Next
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
            Me.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub

you might want to use a dataview which has a sort property. check out an example here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.dataview.sort%28v=VS.71%29.aspx

This another way sorting!!!
Dim dr As DataRow = dtTable.NewRow
        Dim comp As New System.Collections.Comparer(System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture)
        Dim intSortField As Int32 = dtTable.Columns.IndexOf("FieldToBeSorted")

        For cntOutter As Int32 = 0 To dtTable.Rows.Count - 1
            For cntInner As Int32 = 0 To dtTable.Rows.Count - 2
                If comp.Compare(dtTable.Rows(cntInner).Item(intSortField), dtTable.Rows(cntInner + 1).Item(intSortField)) = 1 Then
                    dr.BeginEdit()
                    dr.ItemArray = dtTable.Rows(cntInner + 1).ItemArray
                    dr.EndEdit()
                    dtTable.Rows.RemoveAt(cntInner + 1)
                    dtTable.Rows.InsertAt(dr, cntInner)
                    dr = dtTable.NewRow
                End If
            Next cntInner
        Next cntOutter
