Local call number browsing/searching problem

I’m wondering if something can be done to solve the indexing problem inherent in the use of local call numbers, such as those used for compact discs in the Hamon AV department.

Currently, the sequence is: CD 1, CD 10, 100, 1000, 101, 1001…1999, 2, 20, 200, etc.

Since I have today reached 5-digits (CD 10000), sequential numbers will be exponentially even further apart than they already are. [Posted by Toni Nolen on behalf of Michelle Hahn — issue was originally reported via OIT Help System 5/28/2009]
