Hi Alexandre,

In order to use the OrderBy clause on a DateTime field ignoring the year I suggest you to base your query on the following code snippet which is retrieving data from the Orders table of the Northwind database.         

...
using (YourContextName db = new YourContextName())
{
    var orderByDateTimeWithoutYear = db.Orders
        .Where(x => x.OrderDate.HasValue)
        .OrderBy(x => x.OrderDate.Value.Month)
        .ThenBy(x => x.OrderDate.Value.Day);
      ...
}
...
If you want to become more familiar with the LINQ capabilities of OpenAccess ORM you can download our SDK and look at our Linq 101 sample.

I hope this helps.
