XsltListViewWebPart custom column sorting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    In my SP project there is a page where i am using the XsltListViewWebPart and it has a column which contains alpha numeric data and hence the data type is string. But there is a requirement that the sorting of that column must be like this 

    Numeric first then alphabets then special characters.

    As far as i know the data binding using XsltListViewWebPart is internal and its not possible. So can anyone please help me out.

    If its not possible then i must convey it to the client.

  • Hi,

    We can use SharePoint designer to sort the column.

    <FieldRef Name="ColumnName"/>

    Best Regards
