Here's the deal:
In a Report, if you have *any* Grouping/Sorting configured (and you do), Access ignores *any* sorting in the underlying query for the Report.

Your query has sorting ... and is being ignored.

You must do the sorting via the Group/Sorting Dialog.

It's not obvious ... until you know about it ... and now you do :-)

Note that worse ... JET still does the sorting in the query - wasting time :-(
I notice you are Grouping by several fields in the query. You might want to rethink that also ... and do it in the report, which may likely be more efficient ....
