Sort Configurations by Length

Scenario:  At my work we use parts with a large design table full of configurations (some have over 1000 part numbers in the table).  Each configuration is randomly given a part number that is not in any particular order in relation to its length.  Due to a PDM software we use, we need to have the configuration name be only the part number.

 

Question:  When you right click on a part and use the drop down to select a configuration, is there any way to have SolidWorks sort the configurations by a field other than configuration name?  In the picture you can see a sample of what I am talking about, but it is much more cumbersome to change configurations when the list is hundreds of random parts that are not in a sensible order.  If they were sorted by length it would be so quick and easy to change between length configurations.
