    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:
