When working in Access sort data to make it easier to work with, including text-based and numerical data in your Access database.
When Access 2007 sorts on a text value, it offers the two options described in the table below:
|Sort Option||Also Called||Description|
|A to Z||Ascending||Values closest to A are displayed first|
|Z to A||Descending||Values closest to Z are displayed first|
The sort command section in the Sort group on the Ribbon is another way to begin a sort.
