Jeff -- ...and then Jeff said... % % One last question. % % I changed all the DB values where numbers are used - (varchar - int)
Well, you should only change for those where the numbers are numbers... % % But for the well locations, there are dashes in them, I.E. 10-15-065-22 Exactly. % % With setting the field to int, it only displays the first part. % 10-15-065-22 shows as 10 % There are also several other fields that use dashes. Then those are an alphanumeric mixture and should be a varchar. % % If I set it back to varchar, will it sort it right because the numbers are % separated by an alfa character, or will I have the same problem as before? If the numbers are padded then it will sort right. That is, is the 065 holding three places with a zero? If it's always 2-2-3-2 digits then sorting will be just fine (just like "00055" would have sorted as you expected against "14000" in a varchar field).
