I have attached an Excel file (and its CSV equivalent) containing just one column and nine rows of data. For some reason, I can't get it to alphabetically sort.

Can anyone give this a shot and tell me if you can sort it alphabetically? And if not, can anyone tell me why?Won-tSort.csvWon-tSort.xlsx

The data inside the file is simply:

JBL-CWT128-WH
JBL-CWT128-WRC
JBL-CWT128-WRX
JBLD-124-67001-00X
JBLD-124-67001-01X
JBLD-129-20010-00
JBL-D16R2445
JBL-D16R2450
JBLD-2241H

For some reason, I cannot make this sort properly with Excel.
