Order by

Order by

I can’t sort by the second-last digit of a number (for example, sorting the numbers 4491, 1195, and 1364 by the third digit).

Try using the “RIGHT” function to order the numbers. If they are stored as integers, you will first have to convert them to character. Here’s the code I used:

use scratchgocreate table #test(	x int)insert into #test values(4491)insert into #test values(1195)insert into #test values(1364)insert into #test values(111)select xfrom #testorder by right(cast(x as char(8)),2)drop table #test
