I have a sql statement as follows:

Select       Client, sum(Amt1) as A, sum(Amt2) as B
from       Mytable
where       test = '76’
group by Client
order by substring(Client,2,1)

which returns something like this:

Client      A      B
M1      626      4
J1      1800      42
L1      1425      25
K1      1028      16
K2      566      11
M2      247      1
J2      794      4
L2      708      6
K3      282      9
J3      392      10
L3      331      6
M3      134      2
K4      173      2
M4      27      0
J4      216      1
L4      193      13
M5      13      0
J5      41      1
L5      65      2
K5      32      0

 Ok,This returns all the 1’s , 2’s, 3’s and so on together for the Client, but doesn’t come out in alphabetical order.  How do I make it to return alphabetically -number(in Client )? Like as follows

Client
J1
K1
L1
M1
J2
K2
L2
M2
.
.
.
and so on.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Select      Client, sum(Amt1) as A, sum(Amt2) as B
from      Mytable
where      test = '76’
group by Client
order by substring(Client,2,1), substring(client,1,1)
