Sorting in SharePoint

If you look at the attached picuture you can see how sharepoint is sorting my documents. I need it to sort by more digits than it is.  

I dont want it sorting like

02-01
02-100
02-65

I need 02-65 Above 02-100 if that makes since. If not please let me know.

I had the same issue. It's all in the sort setting unser site actions. Take a look at this link, it gets you to the area you need to adjust the sort settings.

Sharepoint is considering this field as string and sorting it on String basis only, i.e. why u r not getting ur desired results (Bcoz Name is a mix of string & int).

I don' think u will be able to modify this sorting behavior in SP, instead u can try creating another column based on this Name column and sort basis on that custom column.

Looking at your link want I need to enable Publishing Features.  Unfourtanly that feature is only in MOSS 2007-10. Not 3.0, so I guess I need to seek approval for 2010 purchase :-)

I think  navtej dhillon is right- we had a similar problem with a document library for meeting documents, where the documents needed to be listed in the order they appeared on the agenda.  We created a column called Agenda Order of type number and used it to sort the items in the library.
