I wish to add a birthday field to my database showing just

Resolved Question:

I wish to add a birthday field to my database showing just the day and month. I then want to take out a report in month order. My problem is that when I specify dd mmmm the field adds the current year so although initially the list was correct as all birth dates were entered at same time and were produced in month order, having moved into a different year the new members added appear at bottom of list and not in month order.
