I am doing a cross join on 2 result sets that only have one row of information each (the first is returning a count and a sum, the second returns a count)

I would like to reorder the results set.

Currently the results are A, B, C

I would like it to be A, C, B

Is there a way to achieve what I would like?  A specific operator/command?

Just list the columns in the order you want

SELECT A, C, B
FROM TABA
CROSS JOIN TABB

As an example:

Select AB, CD, EF
From MyTable
Where AB='12'
Order by AB, EF, CD

ahh, I think I misunderstood the question.  Just select the fields in the order that you want:

Select A, C, B
From MyTable

Forefront.  I was trying to overthink this.  Simply by nesting the whole thing and then selecting in the order I want is the easiest solution.

Thanks for the smack upside the head.  DOH!

Ewangoya, I was probably a little vague in my question, but the cross tabs inclusion in your answer made my mind go in a different direction.  The answer from forefront bounced my mind to the nesting thought and that's why I gave it the solution.

I know I ask stupidly simplistic questions and you have helped me previously and I appreciate it very much.
