If I press Col 0 when _arraydisplay () runs then it works, but I do not know how to do it with code.

nhockm4v,

_ArraySort and the internal ListView sort algorithms are not the same, which is why you get different results. I suggest using leading zeroes like this:

#include <Array.au3>

local \$array = ['10c','6b','6c','6d','10b','7b','8a','9d','2c','5a','ab','bb']

For \$i = 0 To UBound(\$array) - 1
If Number(\$array[\$i]) Then
\$array[\$i] = StringFormat("%03s", \$array[\$i])
EndIf
Next
; And here they are
_ArrayDisplay(\$array)

; Now sort the array
_ArraySort(\$array)

; And then remove any leading zeros
For \$i = 0 To UBound(\$array) - 1
If StringLeft(\$array[\$i], 1) = "0" Then
\$array[\$i] = StringtrimLeft(\$array[\$i], 1)
EndIf
Next

; Et voila!
_ArrayDisplay(\$array)

Edit: Search the forum for "natural sort" and you will find quite a few implementations which will sort as you require.
