Hi all,

TS_SAM_UA_1
TS_SAM_UA_5
TS_SAM_UA_2
TS_SAM_UA_11
TS_SAM_UA_10
TS_SAM_UA_14

I am Populationg all these values in a combo box...

my query is
Select (Emp_Id + 0) as int_id From HR_Emp_Det order by int_id
it displays as

TS_SAM_UA_1
TS_SAM_UA_10
TS_SAM_UA_11
TS_SAM_UA_14
TS_SAM_UA_2
TS_SAM_UA_5

but i need it as


TS_SAM_UA_1
TS_SAM_UA_2
TS_SAM_UA_5
TS_SAM_UA_10
TS_SAM_UA_11
TS_SAM_UA_14

Rgds,
shan

The problem is that you can't cast these as numbers, since they're strings. You'd have to parse out the last part (from the last _ to the end) and then +0 just that component. If you know that each value has a similar format, you can probably rely on this, but it's not very robust. A combination of RIGHT() and LOCATE() shoudl work.
