I have a datasheet sub form (embedded in a pop up form) and want to toggle the sort of one column from a button on the main form, can anyone help with syntax?

Private sub cmd_Sort_Click

    dim strOrderBy as string

    strOrderBy = me.subformcontrolname.form.orderBy

   strOrderBy = "[FieldName]" &  Iff(instr(strOrderBy, "DESC") =0, " DESC", NULL)

   me.subformcontrolname.Form.OrderBy = strOrderBy
   me.subformcontrolname.Form.OrderOn = true

ENd Sub

Note: you must replace "subformcontrolname" with the name of the subform control as it is seen in the Name property when viewing the main form in design view.  Do not confuse this with the subform's sourceobject.

Hi Fyed,
Looks promising but crashes on the last line:
Error 2465 Application Defined or object defined error.
BTW changed 'iff' to 'iif'  ; )

Oops, that should be:

OrderByOn, not OrderOn

Hey,

It's early, and I hadn't had my coffee yet.  And what good is a programmer who hasn't had his/her first cup of coffee?
