    Assisted Solution

    Your attachment didn't come through as a DB. Open your report in design view and right-click in the detail section. Select Sorting and Grouping. At the bottom of the report select Add Sorting. Add the field that contains your date field.

    If this is A2013, in designview click Grouping and Sorting on the band.
    At the bottom, click Add a sorting, select TDate. It should by default select "from oldest to newest".

    See the attachment. (Right-click the link, select "Save as", and - before saving - change the file extension to .accdb).
