Hello Barrie,

Another way to make it...

I got back two quick answers on my sort questions (thanks Stan and Tom)

but both of their solutions took advantage of a characteristic of my

simple example but not my real problem. Unfortunately, to be more

realistic, the port names in my example should have been things such as

Com1, Boca20x, & Digi5 which prevents stripping a known letter

combination from the front and doing a numerical sort.
