    Shane,

    In SQL 7 and up, you can use the TOP query:

    CREATE VIEW <viewname>
    AS
    SELECT TOP 100 percent *
    FROM dbo.<tablename>
    ORDER BY <column>
    GO

    Another option is:

    SELECT *
    FROM <viewname>
    ORDER BY <column>

    A view is supposed to behave like a table (unordered) so the best way is to
    use ORDER BY when you query the view:

    SELECT *
    FROM ViewName
    ORDER BY col1

    Alternatively, you can fool SQL into ordering the view:

    CREATE ViewName
    AS
    SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT *
    FROM TableName
    ORDER BY col1
