Hi,

I'm using the code below to search data in a DataTable, How do I sort the results by SN?

Dim SearchCriteria As String = "Substring(SN, 1,3) IN (" & xyz & " )"

                Dim FilteredDTA As DataTable
                Dim DVA As New DataView(dtsetLinkAOP6A.Tables(0), SearchCriteria, Nothing, DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)
                FilteredDTA = DVA.ToTable
                If FilteredDTA.Rows.Count > 0 Then

                    C1Screen1.Columns(0).Visible = True
                    Me.C1Screen1.DataSource = FilteredDTA.DefaultView.ToTable(True, New String() {"SN", "AGD", "CA"})
                    Me.C1Screen1.Columns("SN").Width = 60
                    Me.C1Screen1.Columns("AGD").Width = 500
                    Me.C1Screen1.Columns("CA").Width = 350
                Else
                    MsgBox("No Records Found")

                End If

Thanks,

Victor

I di not test, but I would try sorting the DataView before using it to create a table.

DVA.Sort = "SN"

Looking at the documentation for the Sort property, I suspect you need to add either "ASC" or "DESC" in addition to the column name.

e.g.

DVA.Sort = "SN ASC"

It worked with DVA.Sort = "SN ASC".

Thanks,
