Hi,

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

SQL
<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,

Hi,

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

SQL
  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...
