you want to order the ntry this

SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT DATENAME(month, createdon) + DATENAME(year, createdon) AS Month, projcode, result, COUNT(*) AS Expr2
FROM         dbo.dmsproj
GROUP BY DATENAME(month, createdon) + DATENAME(year, createdon), projcode, result
order by year(createdon) , month(createdon)

yes she (pratima_mcs:) is right.

First year and Month. Because, Month is repeated.

Hi I tried the query but it failed with

Column dbo.dmsproj.createdon is invalid in the order by clause because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the group by clause

Use
GROUP BY createdon, DATENAME(month, createdon) + DATENAME(year, createdon), projcode, result
instead
