Glad I could help.


With a form, if you want the records to show in a particular order, other than the order of the primary key, you will need to create a query, and sort by the appropriate field(s).

In a Report, this sorting in the query has no effect, you will have to define any sorting in a report by using the Grouping and Sorting functionality within the report itself.
