Hi, I'm using Sybase. I have a table A that contains VendorNum, InvoiceNum as varchar datatype. If i do a select on the table and order it by VendorNum, InvoiceNum, it's not giving me expected results. It's returning the followin:
But if i convert it in int , it gives me expected results. meaning invoiceNUm 2, 3, 12, 14. But i can't convert it in int because the data might convert alphbets, - etc. Could someone please shed some light on doing order by with varchar datatype and getting expected results. This is what i was expecting to recieve.
Thanks for your time.
