SQL View to Excel

I have a view written for SQL Server 2008.  I order by a field called Fiscal Year.  When I run the vew in Management Studio, it runs with the fiscal years in ascending order.  When I add a connection to an Excel spreadsheet to pull this view in, the view returns the rows out of order.  I am not sure why this is.  I definitely am not sure how to resolve.
