Microsoft Access Reports

Good Afternoon,

I have a run into a problem in generating a Microsoft Access Report (attached) and I would like to know if this problem has occurred before. And if so could you advise me of a solution.

The report is monthly summary of hits to a website that are grouped by year. When I add the grouping in the MS Access report, it causes the data to be listed from newest to oldest rather than vice versa. When I remove the group the data are presented correctly from oldest to newest.

Any thoughts about the cause, and hopefully a solution.

Thank you very much,


RE: Microsoft Access Reports

2016 is older than 2017. Are you also sorting by month or just year? Hint: you should be adding the month to the sorting and grouping.

In your group settings, is the year group set to Newest to oldest.

Thanks for the help.
