    Order by - multiple sort

    I have a union query that I want to sort using the following:

    IIf([cboEstimateStatus]="Incomplete",1,IIf([cboEstimateStatus]="Returned",2,IIf([cboEstimateStatus]="Pending Request",3,4))) AS Status

    ORDER BY IIf([cboEstimateStatus]="Incomplete",1,IIf([cboEstimateStatus]="Returned",2,IIf([cboEstimateStatus]="Pending Request",3,4)))

    These are the main statuses and I want these to be on top but I also want to add another field which would be project number. How can I modify this to add [txtProjectNumber] to the sort?

    The output would look like:
