Alphabetize Drop Down ?

Alphabetize Drop Down ?

Alphabetize Drop Down ?

I have a drop down menu that I would like to see alphabetized.
The query in which the drop down draws it's info from is sorted A-Z but when I pull up the drop down list ...it isn't.  I'm sure there is a simple solution...I just can't figure it out.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thank you,

RE: Alphabetize Drop Down ?

A little more information would be helpful.  What language/software are you using?

RE: Alphabetize Drop Down ?

Design View/Combo Box Properties/Row Source?  and click on the elipses (spelling?) and it should give you a query design screen - from there put the field(s) you want to sort by and choose "ascending".
