Goal

Why Doesn't Activity Code "Ascending" Sort in Activities View Column Result in Same Order as Hierarchy in Activity Codes Window? 

After upgrading to 16.2, numeric sort numbers are not staying sequenced as ordered in the dictionary.

For example the order is 1 through 10 but when the layout is sorted, the program sees 1 then 10 before 2. This did not happen with version 8.4.
