If you want a specific order based on the time, you could add a timestamp
field to the table that would default to the current time when the record
was inserted (see create table...default...) . Then you can "order by" on
the timestamp, either ascending or descending if desired.

Subject: [INTERFACES] Inverted result set, why?
> Hi there,
> Using the psql utility I insert three records into a 6.5.3 postgresql
table with or without indexes. I SELECT * and the records are retrieved in
the order I inserted them, and that's correct.
> However, if I SELECT the records from a Delphi 5 application, using the
BDE and the latest ODBC driver, the result set is inverted, i.e., on the
same index key, the last record I inserted is listed first and so on.
> This forces me to use an index even for tables I don't need one. Or worse
yet, I need to create a second, auxiliary field on the table and add it to
the index when I have one in order to get the proper order of the inserted
> I don't know if I should blame Borland's BDE or the ODBC driver.
> Any clues about this problem?
