the field is varchar data type, you will need to either change the field's data type to numerical data type (for example, int),
or have the on-the-fly cast to int:

order by cast(yourfield as int)

this will fail if you have non-numerical data, in which case you will need a more sophisticated method ...

If ID is using a [n][var]char data type, and if the entries can always be converted to a number:
Select id from header group by id order by CONVERT(int, id)

instead of order by CONVERT(int, id), you can simply use order by id*1

I tried the different variations of the Order by statement and none of them worked.  Maybe I was incorrect by saying it was a query, I am actually trying to edit a stored procedure I posted the code.  The problem is when it gets the assemblyid from the the tbl.MbAssemblyHeader the results are only sorted by the 1st number not the actual numeric value.  Sometimes the assemblyid could be alphanumeric.  This is my 1st attemp at something like this so I apologize if I'm not asking the right question.
From dbo.tblSoTransHeader h Inner join dbo.tblSoTransDetail d

		on h.TransId = d.TransId

		Where Coalesce(d.ReqShipDate, h.ReqShipDate) Between @DateFrom And @DateThru

		And h.CustId Between @CustFrom And @CustThru

		And d.ItemId Between @AssemblyFrom And @AssemblyThru

		And d.ItemId in (Select AssemblyId From dbo.tblMbAssemblyHeader group by AssemblyId )

		And (h.TransType = 9 or h.TransType = 3) --9;New;3;Backordered

		And (Select Count(*) From dbo.tblMpOrder o inner join dbo.tblMpOrderReleases r

			On o.OrderNo = r.OrderNo

			Where r.EstCompletionDate Between @DateFrom And @DateThru --44853

			And o.AssemblyId = d.ItemId And r.CustId = h.CustId And r.SalesOrder = h.TransId And isnull(r.PurchaseOrder, '') = isnull(h.CustPoNum, '') and r.Status <> 1) = 0 --pet 43454

		And (Select Count(*) From dbo.tblMpHistoryOrderReleases r  --pet 42494

			Where r.EstCompletionDate Between @DateFrom And @DateThru --44853

			And r.AssemblyId = d.ItemId And r.CustId = h.CustId And r.SalesOrder = h.TransId And isnull(r.PurchaseOrder, '') = isnull(h.CustPoNum, '')) = 0 --pet 43454 

		AND d.Status = 0

Use *1 on all arguments you want to convert from char to int.

>Sometimes the assemblyid could be alphanumeric

please clarify with full data sample (with both numerical data and alphanumerical data) how the sorting should happen.

you might want to left-pad the numerical data so it's aligns right to ensure "requested" ordering:

ok, so let's try
order by isnumeric(yourcol) desc

, case when isnumeric(yourcol) = 0 then yourcol 

  else right( '00000000000' + yourcol , 10 ) end

I get the following error when I modify the code from above and add your code

The ORDER BY clause is invalid in views, inline functions, derived tables, subqueries, and common table expressions, unless TOP or FOR XML is also specified.
	Insert into #Orders (Type, OrderDate, ProdDate, SOTransId, CustId, PurchaseOrder, AssemblyId, LocId, UOMBase, Qty)

	Select 'C', h.TransDate, Coalesce(d.ReqShipDate, h.ReqShipDate) ReqShipDate, h.TransId, h.CustId, h.CustPONum, d.ItemId, d.LocId, d.UnitsBase 

		, Round((d.QtyOrdSell * Case When isnull(d.ConversionFactor, 0) = 0 Then 1 Else d.ConversionFactor End), @PrecQty) --pet 43453

		From dbo.tblSoTransHeader h Inner join dbo.tblSoTransDetail d

		on h.TransId = d.TransId

		Where Coalesce(d.ReqShipDate, h.ReqShipDate) Between @DateFrom And @DateThru

		And h.CustId Between @CustFrom And @CustThru

		And d.ItemId Between @AssemblyFrom And @AssemblyThru

		And d.ItemId in (Select AssemblyId From dbo.tblMbAssemblyHeader group by AssemblyId order by isnumeric(Assemblyid) desc

, case when isnumeric(assemblyid) = 0 then yourcol 

  else right( '00000000000' + yourcol , 10 ) end

 )

		And (h.TransType = 9 or h.TransType = 3) --9;New;3;Backordered

		And (Select Count(*) From dbo.tblMpOrder o inner join dbo.tblMpOrderReleases r

			On o.OrderNo = r.OrderNo

do you have a reason for the ORDER BY, as it's actually for a INSERT?
        Insert into #Orders (Type, OrderDate, ProdDate, SOTransId, CustId, PurchaseOrder, AssemblyId, LocId, UOMBase, Qty)

        Select TOP 100 PERCENT 'C', h.TransDate, Coalesce(d.ReqShipDate, h.ReqShipDate) ReqShipDate, h.TransId, h.CustId, h.CustPONum, d.ItemId, d.LocId, d.UnitsBase 

                , Round((d.QtyOrdSell * Case When isnull(d.ConversionFactor, 0) = 0 Then 1 Else d.ConversionFactor End), @PrecQty) --pet 43453

                From dbo.tblSoTransHeader h Inner join dbo.tblSoTransDetail d

                on h.TransId = d.TransId

                Where Coalesce(d.ReqShipDate, h.ReqShipDate) Between @DateFrom And @DateThru

                And h.CustId Between @CustFrom And @CustThru

                And d.ItemId Between @AssemblyFrom And @AssemblyThru

                And d.ItemId in (Select AssemblyId From dbo.tblMbAssemblyHeader group by AssemblyId order by isnumeric(Assemblyid) desc

, case when isnumeric(assemblyid) = 0 then yourcol 

  else right( '00000000000' + yourcol , 10 ) end

 )

                And (h.TransType = 9 or h.TransType = 3) --9;New;3;Backordered

                And (Select Count(*) From dbo.tblMpOrder o inner join dbo.tblMpOrderReleases r

                        On o.OrderNo = r.OrderNo

                        Where r.EstCompletionDate Between @DateFrom And @DateThru --44853

                        And o.AssemblyId = d.ItemId And r.CustId = h.CustId And r.SalesOrder = h.TransId And isnull(r.PurchaseOrder, '') = isnull(h.CustPoNum, '') and r.Status <> 1) = 0 --pet 43454

                AND d.Status = 0

You are correct I was able to get the code you provide working by using Select Top 100 percent but I think I applied to the wrong part of the procedure.  I am trying to look at the prodecure to see if I can use the same format further down.
