Just checking - this is being shown in the Workgroup PDM heading - did you mean for it to be EPDM?
Sorry about that...yes, it should be in the EPDM section. I will repost there.
If it is possible to make a search card work in this way that would be nice! However I think this is just the way ePDM works.

It seems to not treat them like #'s when sorting. Instead we get

Windows 7 chaned it so it no longer sorts that way for files but databases still do. If you have the proceeding zeros in it will sort correctly:
