    Hi (newbie question)
    Is there a simple way to fool a field into sorting the way I want, example:

    13
    13-SE-C
    14
    341
    963

    (The 13-SE-C is going to the bottom)

    You will need to either add a sort column with either text or numeric
    content, or you can write some sorting code. You can also use code in a
    column to grab the numeric beginning like:

    Expr1: Val([YourField])

    It will return a 0 if the field starts with any letter though.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
