    sheet2
    sheet10
    sheet11
    sheet12


    now when i give sort command from excel .. excel sorts the items in following way...

    sheet1
    sheet10
    sheet11
    sheet12
    sheet2
    sheet3


    I have written all charactes in lower case.

    Actually the sorting should be in

    sheet2
    sheet3
    sheet10
    sheet11
    sheet12

    Then you need to name them that way:

    sheet01
    sheet02
    sheet03
    sheet10
    sheet99

    sheet001
    sheet101
    sheet358

    If this is a sort you use often, you might consider creating a custom sort list. See help file for info.
