    Index Sort Order Modification

      We are generating a part numbers index in CS5, but higher versions are available to me. The part number index will include about 17,000 part numbers. The part numbers include alphas and numbers. We need it to sort numeric and then numeric alpha.

       

      For example we get this:

       

      1C-4060 8-20
      1P-2375 8-22
      3E-4296 8-22
      3G-3287 8-21
      4C-3582 8-20
      120-9143 8-8
      120-9144 8-9
      263-9056 8-5
      263-9057 8-5

      And we need this:

      120-9143 8-8
      120-9144 8-9
      1C-4060 8-20
      1P-2375 8-22
      263-9056 8-5
      263-9057 8-5
      3E-4296 8-22
      3G-3287 8-21
      4C-3582 8-20

      We tried the "SortParagraphs.jsx" script but it didn't complete because there were too many part numbers.
