You wanna say in base ten?

What?

i want to say that the column is alpha-sorted.

And I said it.

I think correct is:

2.9
9.1
15.9
29.9

and so on

that is numeric sort and it makes sense for a numeric column.

Alpha sort is:

15.9
2.9
29.9
9.1

and what should i do with it?

Hi,

Basically it sorts alphabetically so instead of looking at 137 as 137 it looks at it as 1-3-7 so if you have 137 18 and 25 it will sort like this:

1-3-7
1-8
2-5

18
25
137

Either way i just check Beta RC5 and its sorting correctly so please update and it will be fixed

Sorting the minutes played:

if i use "sessions" - it is correct

Bug:

if i use sessions (by Table) it is alpha-sorted in RC5
if i use day it is alpha-sorted in RC5
if i use month it is alpha-sorted in RC5

and it is buggy.
