I've been given a database to modify. It's an Access front with a SQL back-end.
They want to sort by the case number with the newest one listed first; no big deal, except that the case number is the two digit year followed by another number..."15-017" (basically, the 17th case in 2015). Basically I need to sort by the first number, then the second number. It's stored as one record (nvarchar10) in SQL. Unfortunately, there is data from the late 1900s so there are some cases that start with 99-, 98-, 97-, etc.
The sorting only needs to be done on one form so I would like to do this within the Access front end and not have to change anything in SQL.
I'm not overly experienced in Access so would like to keep the resolution as simple as possible.
