now, put those files into a field, with still get the "amazing" order… 

on mouseup
     sort lines fld "theFiles" ascending numeric 
end mouseup

I get the  same result?  It is in "ascending numeric" does see the files at all?

If I sort lines by

on mouseup
sort lines fld "theFiles" ascending text
end mouseup

Then they they same as finder. 


Try again, to sort of line by ascending number file, does not changes files …
do not change from the text sort which remain into the order "ascending text"

What is going on? It seems that the ascending numeric, just doesn’t see the files at all?
