    Alphabetical sort of regional characters


    I have a problem in Excel, which I think originates from Windows.


    I need to sort a list which is "numbered" with two letters. So it means that "aa." should appear as the first item, "ab." as the second, "ac." as the third etc.


    Before this used to work fine, - but for some reason my new PC? Excel's sort order now has changed, so the "aa." item comes last instead of first.


    I believe the problem might have something to do with the fact that i my region Norway the two letters "aa" could sometimes be used as identical to the letter "å", - which is the last letter of the alphabet.


    Is there any way I could tell Excel - or Windows - that it should NOT treat "aa" as "å"? I have tried looking into regional settings etc. without finding anywhere I could do it.

    :)
