Default Anyone Expert in SQL Queries


My Question is related to SQL Query. Let me explain it using an example.

Suppose an access table having records 001,002,003,004,005

Now what I want to do is using Select Query sort the records in such a way that it first display 004 and then the remaining records
So the list will display something like this


I can only use ONE sql query to sort and display the records in above mentioned format

Thank you,
Zeeshan Ahmed

Me expert? no. For an SQL expert I would place this post in the proper area (P2P Forum > Database > SQL Language)

What data type are these numbers?

It will depend on the db you are using, but if your db supports case statements, you could do something like this (I have assumed the fields you mention are strings as they all have leading zeroes in their values)...
SELECT myFieldVal, CASE WHEN myFieldVal = '004' THEN -1 ELSE 0 END AS myOrder 
FROM myTable ORDER BY myOrder, myFieldVal;
