Alphabetical Sort

Does anyone know a way to sort alphabetically with no precedence being given to case? Take the following output:

AZP
Allfirst
Amadaeus
BYU
Brightstar

This is the returned list of customers I receive when I do a normal sort. However, it is not really alphabetical.

Thanks...

Paul

    if ur inserting all your data into a 'list' or a 'combo box', you could try setting the 'Sorted' property for either of these to 'true'....
