    Sort in Excel (2000)

    I'm trying to sort the attached spreadsheet and for some reason the sort is incorrect. The cells in column B are all formatted the same. Why won't it sort?

    Some of the "numbers" in B are text the others are numbers. Text and numbers are sorted differently.

    To make them all numbers
    select column B
    data - text to columns - delimited <finish>
