Hi Charles,

I saw the answer of Mark.
If you don't want the user to see the numbers, you can use a list  
like the following using tabs:

<school name> tab <school number>

Set the tab-stops of the field to put the second item out of view.
Sort your field with:

set the itemDel to tab
sort fld <field name> numeric by item 2 of each

Hope this helps.
Best Regards from Paris,

Eric Chatonet.
