    SQL database, extract data in descending order to TextBox using VB.NET 4.5 OR SQL?

    Hi,
    I was wandering I have a SQL database which stores numbers and I can extract data from it and place it in a DataGridView. I can have it so that the numbers are placed in descending order IE 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,. I do this using SQL.

    Code:
    Dim dt As New DataTable("users")
            sql = "SELECT * FROM Users ORDER BY UserNumber DESC"
            da = New SqlDataAdapter(sql, con)
            da.Fill(dt)
            DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
    I have just created 10 TextBoxes, 5 will hold UserNames, 5 will hold their UserNumber Now I can extract that same data and place it in TextBoxes. I do this by specifically saying which textbox the data should go in to. How would I go about rearranging that data so that it also lists the UserNumbers in order. Because when the numbers go in to my database they are in no order. So should I be using VB.NET code to rearrange the order once they are loaded in to the textBoxes? Or is their a way of using SQL to do it when fetching the data.

    Code:
    UserName.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(0).Item(1))
            UserNumber.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(0).Item(2))
            UserName1.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(1).Item(1))
            UserNumber1.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(1).Item(2))
            UserName2.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(2).Item(1))
            UserNumber2.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(2).Item(2))
            UserName3.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(3).Item(1))
            UserNumber3.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(3).Item(2))
            UserName4.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(4).Item(1))
            UserNumber4.Text = CStr(ds.Tables("Users").Rows(4).Item(2))
    Thanks for reading

    Use the datatable with the order by clause like in the first piece of code and then step through the data
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.
