Check the data type of the date column - is it really a date, or is it
being converted to a text type? If it's the latter, it will be sorted
alphabetically rather than in date order.

I have checked the datatype. It is as string. How to change it to datetime?
If you have any idea to chage datatype for BDC list.

I have changed the datatype string to datetime in the xml which i have
generated from BDCMetaMan. Sorting is happening. But problem is that date is
displaying like '2008-07-25T01:36:03Z'.I need to display the date in the
format of 'mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss'.
Is possible to do it. If you have a idea just share with me.
