Found this over at http://www.dbforums.com/showthread.php?1099710-Changing-the-Reports-Sort-Order-with-VBA-Code

you can simple sort your report by modifying Order by property in open event of your report. something like:

to sort by "Names" field in on click event of your button that fires the report;
Code:
      DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReportName", acViewPreview, , , , "Names"
then in Open event of your Report;
Code:
Me.OrderBy = Me.OpenArgs
Me.OrderByOn = True

Works but I have an additional problem in that I already pass the name of the report in its caption using the Open Args.  So, I need to pass two items in open args.

    DoCmd.OpenReport strReportName, acViewReport, , strFilter, , strReportCaption

Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.lblTitle.Caption = Me.OpenArgs
End Sub

Will post as another question as you did answer the one I asked.
