    Sorting output in Ascending rather than Descending

    Hi all,

    Okay I've been doing some searches online, and also reading in my powershell
    books, but I cant seem to find the command to sort in ascending, and I know I
    can sort in Descending but when I enter sort-object -ascend or -asc I get an
    error..but -desc seems to work...if I try to leave sort-object blank I also
    get an error. So I figured I'd ask for a lil help...

    There is no Ascending parameter on select-object, it's the default behavior.
    What do you get for:

    dir | sort

    Can you see that the files are sorted in Ascending order?
    Can you post your command?
