Re: doubt in select query

You can't be sure about the order that a query returns without adding an order statement to your SQL query.

If you want to get a result in a special order which is not equal to any data of a column you'll do best to add a new column with index values which specify the order (e.g. 10 for 526, 20 for 504, 30 for 503 and 40 for 503). Then your query will look something like this:

select * from Currency order by order_column

Hope, this helps ;-).
