Lesson 3 Sorting records
Objective Sort records in a table using one or more fields.
You may find that there are times when you need to look at the data in a table in a certain order. The Sort buttons available in the datasheet view allow you to quickly sort a datasheet. Once sorted, you can easily find the earliest or latest date in a field, or the largest or smallest value.
To be sure, sorting a datasheet is a rather primitive way of sorting data in your database, you can also sort a query. Most likely you will find that you want your data formatted and sorted--in that case you will want to create a sorted report. However, for some tasks sorting the table datasheet is sufficient and it's also easy. The SlideShow below shows you how.
