Here is my Code for my cascading combo boxes in Access, all I want to do is sort by Project in my second combo box.  Order by is not working.....

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub ProjectType_AfterUpdate()

Me.Project.RowSource = " SELECT ProjectID,Project, ProjectTypeID" _
                       & " FROM tblProjects" _
                       & " WHERE ProjectTypeID=" & Me.ProjectType  
End Sub

The below assumes ProjectTypeID is numeric.

Me.Project.RowSource = " SELECT ProjectID,Project, ProjectTypeID FROM tblProjects WHERE ProjectTypeID=" & Me.ProjectType  & " ORDER BY Project"

If it's a text...

Me.Project.RowSource = " SELECT ProjectID,Project, ProjectTypeID FROM tblProjects WHERE ProjectTypeID='" & Me.ProjectType  & "' ORDER BY Project"

Also, if the one combo box feeds another, you can be real slick and move the focus to the second one...

Me.Project.SetFocus
Me.Project.DropDown
