Column order

Hi Experts,

I have designed my database columns in design view but when I switch to datasheet view the columns are in a different order. How can I force the column order to follow the design view order?

In what you call "datasheet view", higlight the column and drag it to the desired position..

Hi capricorn1:

I have too many columns and multiple databases. If this is the only way it will take me hours.

DColin,

lets get the terminology clear first..

explain how you created the  "datasheet view".

by "multiple databases", do you mean many tables ?

I do not have multiple tables I have 30+ separate databases with the same schema. All the databases have the same (desired) column order in design view, but in datasheet view the columns are all over the place. Each database table has 50+ columns. If I can not get the datasheet views to follow the design order it is going to take forever to manually move the columns into the desired order.

Thanks it seems to be OK now. What I did was move a single column in design view then switch to datasheet view click yes to the 'save new table' prompt and datasheet view now followed the design layout. I then moved the column back to the desired position and datasheet followed the design and all is well.
