Can an Expert provide the solution to my question on Access please.

Each day data is entered in an Access Database through a Form and 'notes' are included with the date of entry

When we open an item we need the Notes to be displayed in order but for some reason they are not.

i.e. they are in this order.

05/12/14
08/12/14
09/12/14
02/12/14

How do I change this so that 02/12/14 would be the first entry

Thanks

note: the field data type shall the date/datetime, otherwise (if its text), the ordering will not work correctly
you can read up in general in this article, though the functions as such are named differently in ms access, the principle is exactly the same: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Miscellaneous/A_1499-DATE-and-TIME-don%27t-be-scared-and-do-it-right-the-first-time.html
