Order of films based on Story

I know the order of films based on the choronological order, but what is the actual order based on story plots or more accurately the novels on which they were each based.

For instance, the latest Casino Royale (2006) with Daniel Craig was more like a prelued to all the other Bond films. The plot was more or less his first assignment as a "00" besides the mission he was on. Where as the others are when he is already a "00" hence he is 007, the coolest guy ever.

So from there, does the next Daniel Craig film, "Quantum of Solace" take place after the story of Casino Royale or is it just a random story from Ian Flemmings collection? Likewise for each of the Bond films, where do they fall in order of story board? If there even is a difference in order of year versus story.

If any one could shed some insight on this I would be most interested in hearing it.

The older movies were mainly just EON making the Novels into Movies, they werent really in chronological order. They started with Dr. No even tho the first novel was CR. The only time I can think of is where in FYEO how Bond puts flowers on Tracys grave from when she died in OHMSS but that was like 12 years earlier.

When Craig came on as Bond they Rebooted the series. Quantium of Solace takes place RIGHT after Casino Royal like a sequel.

Also QoS the movie doesnt take after any flemming stories, it just takes the name from a story in the novel FYEO. They made QoS as a sequel pretty much. So yeah the older ones dont go in any order really.
