MySQL Order By 06.05.10
The ORDER BY keyword is used to sort the data in a recordset.
The ORDER BY keyword sort the records in ascending order by default.
If you want to sort the records in a descending order, you can use the DESC keyword.
ORDER BY field_name ASC
ORDER BY field_name DESC
ORDER BY column_name(s) ASC|DESC
Order by Two Columns
It is also possible to order by more than one column. When ordering by more than one column, the second column is only used if the values in the first column are equal:
ORDER BY column1, column2
