Hi,

See the below query. It will give you desired output.

<pre lang="sql">select SrNo from Table_1
order by case
when SrNo like '%[0-9]%' then 1
else 0
end,
SrNo

Here SrNo is your table column name.

Thanks,
Viprat

Hi,

Sorting Alpha numeric data is bit difficult one. But it can be done by following method..

  SELECT value from YourTable Order By 
REPLACE(value, LEFT(SUBSTRING(value, PATINDEX('%[0-9.-]%', value), 8000), 
PATINDEX('%[^0-9.-]%', SUBSTRING(value, PATINDEX('%[0-9.-]%', value), 8000) + 'X')-1),
REPLICATE('0', 20 - len(LEFT(SUBSTRING(value, PATINDEX('%[0-9.-]%', value), 8000), PATINDEX('%[^0-9.-]%',
SUBSTRING(value, PATINDEX('%[0-9.-]%', value), 8000) + 'X')-1))+LEFT(SUBSTRING(value, PATINDEX('%[0-9.-]%', value), 8000),
PATINDEX('%[^0-9.-]%', SUBSTRING(value, PATINDEX('%[0-9.-]%', value), 8000) + 'X')-1)))


Thank you...
