is it possible to use variable for sorting?
declare @sort varchar(10)
SET @sort='column1 DESC'
SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY @sort)AS rowId, * FROM table
Is dynamic SQL only option?

I'm using MS Money 2004 Small Business. In the account list, my accounts
are catagorized by and in this order:
- bank accounts
- credit accounts
- investment accounts
- loans and liabilities
- asset accounts
In the above view, I cannot easily determine totals for assets and
liabilities. The following view does this.
- bank accounts
- investment accounts
- asset accounts
-loans and liabilities
How do I get the above view?
I don't use Small Business. But you can run a Net Worth report to get total

Not sure when the layout of the newsgroups changed but I can't seem to find the ability to sort by new message in a thread instead of sorting by just the original thread date.
That was hugely helpful as I could follow along and see what threads were still active.
If you're gonna hang around in the newsgroups (any newsgroups), you may want to
start using a newsreader.

I have been asked to create 2 documents -

Can anyone offer any suggestion on how I can approach or solve this challenge?

I assume you mean "Is it".
The form sort order has nothing to do with editing or adding new
records, so the answer is yes.
If you cannot edit or add new records, make sure the form's record
source, if it is a query, is updateable. Some queries are not.

I am trying to sort a csv list.
The first column is a date & the 2nd is time.
Can I merge these 2 together, so I can get date & time together, allowing me

If they're really dates and times, you could just use a helper cell and then use
a formula like:
You can give it a nice format showing date and time if you like.
But why not just sort the list using the date as the primary key and the time as
a secondary key?

How can I add a leading space to a column of numbers in excel?
I need a space peceding the numbers.
Thanks in advance.
Do really need a space added to the number or do you want to shift the
numbers a little to the right for legibility/esthetics .
To add a space
= " " & 12345
= " " & A1 if your data ("12345") is in cell A1.
if you want to nudge the numbers a bit to look better , use the "Increase
Indent" button in the toolbar.
