    Report is not using the data from a query

    I have Windows 10, Access 365. I created a simple table with two files - name and age. Entered some data, then created a query which displays both fields and sorts on age Ascending. Looking at the query results it shows the data correctly with the age sorted. Saved the query as Query1

    Then I clicked on the query and created a report. The report Data Source says it is using Query1, but the data is not sorted by the age - it is displayed as if it were using the underlying table.

    I have searched but I have not been able to find any discussion of this issue. Any idea what the problem is? I can upload the database or screen shot if that would be helpful.

    Reports have their own sorting (and grouping)
    Source sorting is ignored

    That did the trick. Thanks for the info. I thought in a previous version they did use the source sorting, but I may be mistaken. Thanks for replying so quickly!
