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?

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

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