Sorting Option Set

Hello,

 

I have an option set (single select choice field) which I only have integers in and I am trying to sort these ascending. The option set is for Case Size and since going live an addition needs to be added in but I want my dropdown to show the right ordering. I have tried every type of sorting possible and I can't work out why it isn't working:

 

This is my standard unsorted code: Choices('Case Size Option Set')

 

These are the variations I have tried without success:

 

  • Sort(Choices('Case Size Option Set'), Ascending)
  • Sort(Choices('Case Size Option Set'),"Value", Ascending)
  • SortByColumns(Choices('Case Size Option Set'), Ascending)
  • SortByColumns(Choices('Case Size Option Set'),"Value", Ascending)

 

Can anyone help with this?

 

Thanks

I made a slight tweak to the code in my edit above. You may have figured it out already but it will sort it properly if you have an integer. 

my example I had like 1, 2, 3...12, 13 so when I used the first method it sorted it like 1, 12, 13, 2, 3. When I put the Value before the text that fixed it. 

The value(text(value)) thing I never would have thought of. Creativity amongst the cursing. Dude, you know how to dig in!
