Calc Data Sort sorts by only the first number - in this case: sorted by Ascending. For instance 150 in a row would be put before 21 in the row. Please help. Thanks.

Perhaps numbers are as text in cells.
Please try the option: Menu/Data/Sort/Options - Enable natural sort.

Thank you for answering so promptly, mariosv. Yes, I had tried that. I saw in an earlier post and version of LOO that this was a bug but thought it might have been fixed by now.

Also, I began with an OO calc document. Would that matter?
