    Hi All,

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a set of customer code in Office 97 which sorted as below:

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

    But in Office XP, the sorting order is different, it looks like:

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

    Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this issue?

    Thank you very much.


    Regards,
    Sean

    Yes, Microsoft broke the sorting order when they released JET 4 (Access 2000
    and later.)

    They acknowledge the problem here:
    Sort Order Has Changed with Microsoft Jet version 4.0
    at:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;236952

    I don't think you can expect them to change their minds, because their
    larger database product does the same thing.
