Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try to specify a sort inside your DTF or build a Macro (VB Script) to Sort your data after download or build a LF sorted upon your PF and download that instead of PF.

There are numerous possibilities.

==========================================================

The rule has always been if you don’t specify an ORDER BY, the order isn’t guaranteed. So the obvious suggestion is to specify an ORDER BY.
