Proper numerical field sorting? By: Vaelor Date: February 05, 2007
I've just noticed when sorting my Books category by number of pages, MediaMan sorts the field as if it were a text column, and not actually numerically. Hence, my sorted column looks like this:-

Num of Pages

1056
1216
226
304
600
798
848
901
95

Would it be possible in future versions for the software to actually sort numerical columns numerically, so that the numbers actually sort from lowest to highest or highest to lowest, instead of just as a text string? Thanks!

I'm sorry but numeric sorting is automatically available in Windows XP. Currently there's no plan to implement it for backward support in lower version operating systems.

I am very sorry to hear this. It seems your software is very dependant on some things that are only found in Windows XP, which seems unusual as there are many people who prefer the stability of other operating systems. But oh well, at least this is only a very small thing at least. Thanks anyway.
