Using ORDER BY with a VIEW

I have created a VIEW in my database from which my app selects records based on various criteria entered by the user
It builds a QUERY from what the user enters… and tacks “ORDER BY lastNAME,firstNAME,birthdate” on the end

the most basic query would be

SELECT * FROM quickData ORDER BY  lastNAME,firstNAME,birthdate

HOWEVER, the records to NOT come back in that order, the come back in the physical order they were entered.

If I use TADPOLE to execute the query… it returns the correct results?

Any ideas?

PS. there are no database errors

sigh… NEVER MIND… turns out that after I read the data, loaded the Listbox… I SORTED the listbox… doh!
