Access 2010 Query Display Sort Order

Posted on 2013-06-25
Last Modified: 2013-06-25
Hi Experts,

In the left hand window of Access 2010 ,some of my Access databases sort queries by type first and then alpha sort second (i.e. All update queries together)...other databases sort the queries alphabetically regardless of query type.  How do I toggle between these two views?

If I understand your question correctly this can be done using the tiny (downward pointing) arrow next to "All Access Objects" at the top of the pane. I have included an image for clarification. Hope this helps you out!

...I would like to change view '1' in the attached (clumped by update queries, crosstab queries, delete queries, etc.) to be the same type of view as in '2' where regardless of query type, alpha order overrides the query type....I played with the options in your image, but I still can't seem to get it to work....

I understand what you're asking now. Right click the "group" name (Queries) and choose "Sort by" then select "Name" and A-Z
I've embedded another image for you.
Hope this helps!
