Hi all,

I am currently sorting my dataview but     DvTheData.Sort = "Time DESC"

But i need to sort it so it runs up in number format but with adding HT and FT like so...

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11......43,44,45,HT,46,47....,87,88,89,90,FT

anyone able to shine any light on how this could be done>

Add a String column to your table, and copy the value from the Time column into that new column, with the following rules:

- If the value is less than 10, copy "0" & value
- If the value is HT, copy as 45A
- If the value is FT, copy as 99
- Otherwise, copy the value as is

If you prefer, add a Single column and do the copy with the following rules:

- If the value is numeric, copy it has is
- If the value is HT, copy as 45.5
- If the value is FT, copy as 99

Sort your DataView on that column and the Time will show in the order you want it.
