You should use  Sorted dictionary.
Please clarify for me if you need to sort by SalesAmountDescr contents in order to get the associated amount and amout type.
If so you need to create an extra class called SalesAmount that contains 3 properties:
SalesAmountDescr, SalAmount and SalesAmountType.
Then your collection code sample should change to:
Dim collection As New Dictionary(Of String, SalesAmount)
Dim key As String = SalesAmountRow.SalesAmountDescr.ToString
Dim entry As New SalesAmount()
//fill entry props.
 collection.Add(key, entry)

In this case:
Dim collection As New SortedDictionary(Of String, String)
For Each SalesAmountRow In TransSale.IPrimarySale.ISalesAmountList
     collection.Add( SalesAmountRow.SalesAmountDescr.ToString(),SalesAmountRow.TermPrem.ToString())       
Next 

Open in new window

The order is ascendent order by SalesAmountDescr, if you require a different sort order implement the collection.Comparer property.

Or use LINQ if ISalesAmountList supports IEnumerable:
For Each SalesAmountRow In TransSale.IPrimarySale.ISalesAmountList.OrderBy(Function(p) p.SalesAmountDescr)
