    You need to select your number from the database, set it to a variable and then add your number to it. Something like this:

    Select myoldnumber from mytable

    dim mynewnumber as integer
    mynewnumber = myoldnumber + text1.text

    ''then update your mytable

    update mytable set myoldnumber = mynewnumber where myfield = myoldnumber

    To order your table just do something like this:

    select myoldnumber from mytable order by myoldnumber ascending
