No, this won't be the reason for the failure. ORDER BY is ASC by default
(you never have to specify it). You only need to specify this param when
you want a DESC sort...

As Martijn said, it will be a case-sensitivity problem that will be solved
(immediately) by using quoted delimiters and (robustly) by rebuilding the
database without case-sensitive identifiers.

...or subscribe to the IBPhoenix CD and get a whole lot of useful stuff
including the Using Firebird manual and the Firebird Reference Guide...(but
no API Guide yet, William...)
