Apology accepted.

First off lets take a trip down the old API.

from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/util/HashMap.html

"This class makes no guarantees as to the order of the map; in particular,
it does not guarantee that the order will remain constant over time."

Second, you can create the order when you pull them out.  But I am guessing
that you are using some sort of iterator to loop through the map and print
out the results, since you dont know the column names.  I can only suggest
that you try to create some result classes and not use maps.  Maps are great
for parameter maps but are generally frowned upon as a result class.  As a
last resort you might get away with trying to use LlinkedHashMap from
