How do I get code to run through recordsets as they are shown?

Firstly, I run an append query to a table.  The data is needing to be in order by Record Locator. The Record Locator Number is a specific column used to to group invoices together.

After the append query is completed and I open the table, the data is shown in the order I want to see it.

I then run the code to loop through all recordsets on that specific table.  However, instead of looping through the recordsets as they are shown the code loops through the recordsets by the order of another column in the table.

I need the loop to recognize the order according to the Record Locator and not the other column.

Help would greatly be appreciated.

Use the recordset.sort function to sort the recordset on the field and in the order you like.

for example
rstOriginal.Sort = "id asc" to sort the recordset on the field 'id' in ascending order

Try Anthony Berenguel's comment first.

"As they are shown"
Shown where? Displayed in form?

List the code to create the record set. The record set is created using the select statement with Order By phrase.

Tables and queries are unordered sets.  If you want them presented in a particular order, you need to use a query with the Order By clause.  I never used the recordset.sort method but I would guess it to be less efficient than including the Order By clause in the query and letting the server do the sort.  It probably makes no difference if the BE is Jet or ACE but I prefer to use techniques that will work for a server-side database since most of my apps ultimately get "upsized".  If I always use good client/server techniques, I can do the upsizing in a couple of hours at most.
