Click to Sort by Column Header in Microsoft Access

In this video, I'm going to teach you how to create a one-click method to sort by a specific field (column) in your Microsoft Access continuous forms.

Bernie form St. John's, Newfoundland (a Platinum Member) asks: I know you can sort the records in a form by right-clicking on the field and selecting a sort option, but that's a pain. Is there an easier, faster way to just, say, click on the column header and sort by that column? My accounting software works this way and I would love it if Access did, too.


Members will take this up a notch. We will make one click to sort ascending (A to Z) and a second click will sort descending. We will also change the color of the column header label to blue if it's sorted ascending, and red if descending.
