Sorting Numbers

Is there a way to sort sequential numbers? I know you can sort but when I do it with my numbers it looks like this. I want the true sequential order with the double digits ahead of the triple digits.

    Hi @Minni

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You would have to add a so-called helper column with a formula and modify it so all numbers are three numbers or more.

    Like, 001, 010, 100.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
