    If they're numeric, that would happen automatically. If not, it would suggest a non-numeric value is in one of the cells.

    If that doesn't help resolve it, we're happy to take a look, but as per the forum rules, please link to a test case - a test case that replicates the issue will ensure you'll get a quick and accurate response. Information on how to create a test case (if you aren't able to link to the page you are working on) is available here.

    Cheers,

    This is part of the html. I can't send you a link I am afraid as you would need to log in. I am getting ID I then 10 then 2
    

    '''

        <script src="../../js/DataTables-1.9.4/media/js/jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <link href="/js/DataTables-1.9.4/media/css/jquery.dataTables.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
        <script src="/js/DataTables-1.9.4/media/js/jquery.dataTables.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    
            <script type="text/javascript">         
               $(document).ready(function () { 
                   $("#DTable").dataTable({ 
                       "pageLength": 30,
                       "lengthMenu": [ 10, 25, 30, 50, 75, 100 ],
                       "bFilter": false,
                       "aaSorting": [[ 0, 'asc' ]],
                       "aoColumns": [ 
                           { "bSortable": true },
                           { "bSortable": true },   
                           { "bSortable": false }
                       ]
                   });
               });          
            </script>
    

    The table looks like

    <

    <thead>
    <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2" style="width: 2px">
    <h3>ID</h3>
    </td>
    <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2" style="width: 821px">
    <h3>Question</h3>
    </td>
    <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2" width="150">
    <h3>Status</h3>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </thead>

                                                        <tr>
                                                            <td style="width: 2px">
                                                                <h3>

                                                                </h3>
                                                            </td>
                                                            <td style="width: 821px">

    Checkout the Natural sorring plugin. It can remove the HTML for sorting purposes.
