I have a form which opens in datasheet view mode.  There are several fields on the form that are "sortable".  But then there is one particular field that is a calculated field that I can't sort by.  Is it possible that you can't sort with a calculated field?

I have tab stop - Yes
Enabled = Yes
Locked = No

If any of that is causing this.

If you move the calculation to the query you use as source, it should be doable.

You can't sort on the field because it is not part of the recordsource.  It is a property of the form.  Gustav's solution is what you need to do.

Yes.  You are correct.  I moved the calculation to the query and removed it from the field property on the form and it works perfectly.  Thank you very much.
