    Hi all

    This is not a particular problem, I'm just curious to know what determines
    the secondary sort when I have a query sorted just on a single date field if
    there are multiple records for the same date. Record order seems to change
    from day to day and I can't figure out why.....thanks for any answers
    Sheila

    The order of records is essentially random unless you've got an appropriate
    sort defined.

    Tables are "buckets" of data: you should never make any assumptions about
    the physical order of records in them, since that order can be changed by
    doing updates to the table, and by compacting.

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!
