The form has an OrderBy property, so you could set that property in the forms design view, in the property dialog.

You could also use an OrderBy clause in the query that is the recordsource for the form.

You can add two strings after docmd:
Forms!comform.orderby = "ID DESC"
Forms!comform.OrderByOn = True
in "" - field and sequence.

With als315 comment, you may try this one as well:

Forms!conform.OrderBy = "YourDateField DESC"
Forms!conform.OrderByOn = True

You may use ASC for ascending.

Sincerely,
