    Hello, I have a question about sorting.

    My table has special sorting. I have created translation table where
    1USA
    2Canada
    3Asia

    Actual Report has Country and City Groups.
    When placed in Report - data comes out sorted ascending.

    How can I get that special sort? Thanks

    Create a query based on your table and on the translation table, joined on the appropriate field.
    Use this query as record source for the report.
    In the Sorting and Grouping window, specify the number field instead of the Country field for the first sorting/grouping level.
