Pivot table drill down sort



I've seen this question posted several times on boards without an
answer. How does excel determine sort order on the drill down of a
pivot table?

I have a pivot table using an ODBC source for data. The data is
sorted the same way in the ODBC view and the query in Excel. However,
the sort order changes to a date field in the drill down, and I don't
know why.

This is a problem as I'm tasked with getting a text field to show more
than 255 characters. As this will be a file that will be distributed
out to a number of people I don't want ot have to change the registry,
so I'm trying to have the large field values appear in the first 8
rows so excel recognizes as a memo and not text field.

Thanks in advance,
