The data of table tblLeave is as below: (note: leaveId is Primary, and leave is in index for unique data)

leaveId leave
1 Home Leave
2 Sick Leave
3 Maternity Leave
4 Maternity Leave (Male)
5 Mourning Leave

Actually I want the result as below data that leaveId should be in ascending.

0   <Select All>
1   Home Leave
2   Sick Leave
3   Maternity Leave
4   Maternity Leave (Male)
5   Mourning Leave

But I Could not make it ascending.
My Code as below:
SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT leaveId, leaveName FROM tblLeave
SELECT 0,'<Select All>'
 order by leaveId

I used in this way also..
SELECT 0,'<Select All>'
SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT leaveId, leaveName FROM tblLeave ORDER BY leaveId

when I run query Like this
"select * from vLeave", it doesnot work as I want.

Thank you for suggestion. And Sorry for incomplete question.

Since SQL 2005 the ORDER BY part of a view has a different meaning in SQL (or to be most precise it optimized by different rules)...
It does not order the outcome of a view but the inner select statement only...So if you have that top statement, order by will ensure that you get the top (100% ?!?!?) part of an ordered list, but it will not affect the outcome of the view...
(I do understand that you added that TOP to enable ORDER BY, but it still will not work)...
What you have to understand that view is NOT a temporary table - the data of a view not stored anywhere...So can not be order of that data...
You have two options:
1. do the order by on the view and not inside it...
2. create a table-valued function to return the ordered values...
