Arjen van der Meijden has proposed a very elegant query in another post.

Sadly, no. In fact the ability to use SQL from Paradox at all is not well known and
not very visible in the the documentation.

I wonder whether Paradox and MySQL are just not doing the sort (this seems to
be what eats up the time), since the output of the subquery is in fact already in the
proper order.

Yes, the executables all say version 8.1.3.6044
