    Hi All,

    Thanks in advance.

    I group customer with a prefix "SAG-XXX" and "SAG-XXX".

    In Office 97, the sorting order is what I want:

    CustomerCode
    ==========
    SAG-A
    SAG-B
    SG-C
    SGA-A
    SGA-B
    SGA-C
    SGB-A
    SGB-B
    SGB-C
    SGC-A
    SGC-B
    SGC-C

    But when I upgrade to Office XP, the sorting order becomes:

    CustomerCode
    ==========
    SG-A
    SGA-A
    SGA-B
    SGA-C
    SG-B
    SGB-A
    SGB-B
    SGB-C
    SG-C
    SGC-A
    SGC-B
    SGC-C

    Does anyone have any idea on how to correct the sorting?

    Thank you very much.


    Regards,
    Sean

    Yep. The sort order was changed with JET 4 (Access 2000 and later use JET
    4).

    See the Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
