In this post we will discuss how to use CAML Query with Order by condition for dropdown columns in SharePoint 2013.
When I was working with one list having dropdown column with values from 1 to 13.
I want to filter data order by the dropdown column. But when we use dropdown column directly in caml query it will not filter in the same order as it will consider 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 2,3,4.. in this order.
For such type of requirement just create one more calculated column as shown below:
Then add this column and use this column in orderby instead of dropdown column. This will solve the problem.
Hope this helps some one.
