I have a vast document where I have a separate index of dates (really only the year or year range of particular events).
Sometimes the year is known exactly
Sometimes the year is a range
These sort in index as
Event xxxx 77,87
Event pppp 73
Event zzz 79
Event xxx2 99
In other words, date ranges sort alphabetically and are separated from the single numeric entries which sort numerically yielding an odd ordering. Is there any way I get numbers to sort alphabetically and not numerically so that I can get ordering
The index entries are via a macro
And so a single change to the macro might achieve what I want without having to manually edit every one of a couple of thousands of entries to impose a sort order.
I have hit a roadblock on this one. I don't think a MWE would be of additional use here, but happy to post one.
