How to disable or change the report Sort option in Access 2007 using vba

I have a report where under the Group and sorting options I have only one sort option selected. No grouping.  I want to use this report for another means and need to be able to either remove that Sort in the report open event or at least change the field that the report is sorting on.  I can do this for Groupings, but cannot find any code for a sort only. the OrderBy has no effect. Trying to access GroupLevel(0) returns an error. Any ideas on how I can change this sort using vba?

You could set the recordsource in the on open event and put your ordering in the sql statement.
Dim SQL as string
SQL = //put your sql query here
Me.RecordSource = SQL

<the OrderBy has no effect.>
Are you quite sure you are using it correctly?
Can you post the code you were trying...

In order for me.Orderby to work, it must be followed by:
    Me.OrderByOn = True
....and note that the report must be opened in "Print Preview" explicitly for this to work.

This has worked fine for me for years...
