 Description  « Hide
Firebird 2.5 Language Reference Update,
8 Oct 2011,
document version 1.1,
page 95

Syntax:
...
With a UNION:

SELECT [FIRST p] [SKIP q] <columns> FROM ...
[WHERE ...]
[ORDER BY ...]
UNION [ALL | DISTINCT]
SELECT [FIRST r] [SKIP s] <columns> FROM ...
[WHERE ...]
[ORDER BY ...]
ROWS <m> [TO <n>]

ORDER BY clause before UNION ALL is illegal in this sample.

You're right, thanks. I'll fix it for the next edition of the LangRefUpdates.
