pull numeric beginning part of a column value, ignore letters, sort on the results
Values of column "acreage":
1 to 5
3 to 8
I want to numeric sort on either the number (in the case of the first three), or the first number (case of last two). So ignore the " to 5" and " to 8", but otherwise it would be convert (int, acreage). How can I do this?
