I have a report that has field called START_TIME. This field is a date field. When I run the ORDER BY in the query it is correct. When I run the report using PREVIEW that date is not sorted. How do I sort the date show it displays in my report correctly?

1.

Check your matrix/tablix's Row Groups properties, then Sorting, and see if the report is sorting at all, which will override the query's sort order.

2.

Make sure the Data Set shows that column as a datetime, and not text.

1) I have checked and add START_DATE to my tablix and it does not work. No sorting in tablix seems to work

2) My table shows as DATETIME field. Why would the data set change value? How?

are you applying a format to that datetime field in the query?

e.g.
convert(varchar, START_DATE ,111)
