Extra Field - Numeric - Wrong sort order

We added an Extra Field to Tasks. We added a field called "Task Order" and created it as a Numeric field.

However, when we sort on this field, it sorts like an alphabetical field.

So, if we put in "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12" then it will sort the column as "1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9"

Can you please supply a screenshot of your Task Extra Field called Task Order?

Can you please supply a screenshot of your sorted listing?

Also do you know you can simply sort Tasks in the Task listing by using the Tree View and using Sort Tree View function then dropping and dragging?

As you see above, the "Task Order" field we created is sorting the numbers Alphabetically (based on the first number), rather than numerically. We would like to find a way to make this a number field so that it sorts numerically.

We've looked at using the tree view, but it is not quite the same as the numeric sorting we would like to use.
