    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?
