I have an access database of my film collection, column 1 is the number count ie 1,2,3 etc. I have reached 1,000 entries but on entering 1001, 1002, and then clicking a to z to put numbers in the right order, the 1000 plus entries show after the 100 number ie 098,099, 1000 1001. How can I get the 1000 plus entries to show after 999 thankyou

Do you have the column 1 formatted as text or number - try number? Is column 1 auto generated?

I'm confused, are you using Access or Excel?

Hi lotvic it is an access database

In table design under data type choose number and this should resolve your snag.

Was just making sure :) follow Woolwell's advice

To Woolwell and lotvic, thankyou for your advice it worked problem sorted

Tick as resolved. Under text strings the 1 is before 9 no matter what follows. Glad it is sorted.
