    You would need to contrive so that the Round (space) 1 is actually round (space space) 1 so that the alpha dorf is correct.

    This is the ugly side of Alpha numeric sorting, If you want to sort by number, you need a numeric field. You could name the field ROUND, and have the choices be numeric 1 - 12. Is the Text value of Round important for the data entry?

    Made the Round as a text Field, with 1-12 as allowable values, and showing the same thing
    1
    10
    11
    12
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    9




    what can be done to sort this filter Numerically?

    If you change the field to a numeric type field, this will work. right now it is a text field.

    Ad I suggested above, the sort will be alpha. So either number like

    01
    02
    03

    Or else put a space in front of the single digit values.

    It will need to be a Text field type.

    I like the alpha sort using a leading 0, bravo.
