Data sorting
The report I'm currently attempting to write needs to pull data from two separate tables (linked via a third). Easy to do, especially as the report is specific to the linking value. However, I need to be able to sort the data in the two tables together. To clarify, the Abbrev field in one table and the Code field in the other table need to be compared to each other in order to sort the entire report alphabetically. Is this actually possible? If so, can someone please let me know how. I'm guessing that the creation of an ad hoc table involving the relevant fields from the two tables would work - however, I can't figure out how to do it.

    Can you use a query as data source for your report instead of the tables directly ? If so, you could join your tables in the query and have the query return the results ordered as needed, so the report doesn't have to worry about ordering the results.
