Why do my numbers appear to be out of order?

 

MPRouteReader can sort number, text ('string'), and date fields. However, MapPoint must store these fields correctly for MPRouteReader to sort them correctly. The most common situation when this is not the case, is if a numeric field has been inserted as a text field. This will cause MPRouteReader to sort the numbers as if they are text fields, eg. the sequence "1", "10", "11", "2" is in ascending text order whilst the correct ascending numeric order is 1, 2, 10, 11.
