Why can't I display data in descending order in Delphi?

By: Borland Staff

Abstract: The BDE does not support opening an table based on index and displaying the table in descending order

Problem:
Why can't I display data in descending order in Delphi or C++ Builder?

Solution:
If you are using a TTable, descending indexes can be a problem. A way around this
is to use TQuery and specify the SQL order by clause. The downside to this method
is refresh is not automated.
