Solution 1

Whenever you are configuring the select statement
you can use ORDER BY button beside the column name selection.

There you have to set SORT BY which column.

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DMSConnectionString %>"
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [AppSetting] ORDER BY [SettingID]"></asp:SqlDataSource>
