Alphabetical SKU's for numbers

We print our labels using the option to group by sku alphabetically. It generally works well because we have our inventory in alphabetical order. The problem is when there are numbers in sku's it doesn' t work right. For example 15 would come before 2 because it starts with a one using the current system. It should go in the order by number the way you would count.

    I ran into this problem when setting up. You just need to change the 2 to 02 and then 02 will come before 15. But if you have more than 100 locations you should change it to 002 and then 15 would change to 015. hope that makes sense.

    I spent alot of time making sure that our packing slips print the order that we pull in, so if you have any questions I would be glad to help.
