Well, when I create a table in Access and do a sort ascending, I get spaces, symbols, numbers, letters.

The list below uses the US English character set:

! " # $ % & ' ( ) * + , - . / 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 : ; < = > ? @ A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z [ \ ] ^ _`a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z { | } ~  ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

I forgot to mention, the space comes first. These numbers can be viewed by using Excel's CHAR( ) function on numbers 32-255.

I found a really nice table at pcguide.com that includes the entire character set with dec, bin and hex conversions. And yes, after the control characters (NUL, SOH, etc..) the space if first.
