    Insert a column to the right of the SKU number.
    Let's say the first SKU number is in cell C2.
    In the cell next to it, enter the formula =LEFT(C2,2)
    Fill down as far as the data go.
    Click somewhere in the inserted column.
    Click the Sort Ascending button.
    (You can now hide the inserted column, if you wish)
