    Sorting order for Report (97)

    How can I create a report to sort on item number. The itemno field in the table is entered as 1, 2, 3, etc. The report prints 1 and then 10 before it prints item no 2. How can I fix this?

    As Francois suggests, you have to make sure the value being sorted on is numeric. Otherwise, it will sort alphabetically.

    Just an added note. Sorting for reports is handled by the Sorting/Group option within the report. Any sort option you place on the query behind the report is just ignored.
