I don't know if you can change the sort order in FrameMaker's guts, but if you have the option of using it, here's a hack that gets the sort to partially work: make the letters conditional, and sort entire table with them turned off. This groups all the numerics together - i.e. the major sort works - but you then have to re-display the conditional letters and do the minor sort(s) separately. -- Steve
