I've got a bit of a mess here that I'm trying to clean up. I have a variable with numbers put in to in a random order, separated by a space:

numstring = "23 5 187 13"

I want to sort it, so I am using this:

bits = Split(numstring, " ")

for a = UBound(bits) - 1 To 0 Step -1
for j=0 to a
if bits(j)>bits(j+1) then
end if

The PROBLEM I have is that this isn't sorting it numerically, it looks like it is sorting it alphabetically. That means that the end result is this:

5 23 187 13

Is there any way I can do this?

For the comparison I suggest you convert to numbers (I don't remember how to do this) instead of comparing strings.
