    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.

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!
