Sorting on TimeStamp Column in Grid View

Last Modified: 2013-11-08

I am trying to apply sorting on timestamp column in a grid view. In the DB it is of type timestamp but in the datatable and the wsdl which am using for the grid view population the column is of type string .
How can I apply sorting on that columns without disturbing the declaration. I cannot change to type datetime since it has its string references in many other places .
Can anyone pls let me know .
