    Help, I'm a new user of access. Modifying an existing database. The
    sort is on a date field, but the ordering is wrong:

    9/1/05
    9/16/05
    9/2/05
    9/22/05

    In the query table it is correct, but in a report it is wrong. Why? Can
    I just add an expression somewhere? Thanks in advance.

    It looks like your field is text datatype field and is sorting correctly for
    text. In text sort the four characters of 9/16 will be before the four
    characters of 9/2/.

    You should change the field to datatype DateTime.

    You can sort the text field correctly if you use CVDate([YourField]).

    You say “In the query table it is correct…†What does ‘query table’ mean?

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!
