I have a simple application that loads a dbf file into a textbox.  It works fine but I would like to sort it by the field called "ID"

here is the top part of my app:

Private Sub cmdLoad_Click()
Dim errrr As Integer
Dim txtID As String
Dim txtShort As String
Dim db As Database
Dim rs As Recordset
errrr = EOFAction
Set db = OpenDatabase("Z:\aloha\vb\dbf", True, False, "dBASE IV;")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("ITM")
Do While Not errrr

txtID = rs.Fields("ID")
txtShort = rs.Fields("SHORTNAME")


textID.Text = textID.Text & txtID & vbNewLine
textShort.Text = textShort.Text & txtShort & vbNewLine
