In an Exploratory factorial analysis with six factors, I do not obtain the same loadings depending on the order of the items.

ex:
- USEVARIABLES ARE Q1-Q30
does not give the same loadings as
- USEVARIABLES ARE Q1 Q2 Q3 Q7 Q8 Q15 Q21 Q34 Q5 Q23 Q25 Q31 Q35 Q6 Q9 Q12 Q13 Q17 Q19 Q30 Q10 Q11 Q22 Q27 Q28 Q4 Q16 Q20 Q24...

Is it normal? How to overcome this difference?
Thanks for your answer.
