Not sure. It works for me. Can you post a screenshot of the library in question?

Sure..OK here you see the test library I created "Camping Pics". It is comprised of three folders located in different areas of my system. Within each folder is a dummy image. I tried adding a number prefix, because I have used that trick successfully on my hard drive to organize some folders. Here I cannot get it to work..

Ah I see. You need to right click and select Group by->(none). That will get rid of the grouping and then sort will work. It only works within a group if you have grouping.

Excellent! I discovered I am also able to select which attributes I choose to display with the "Sort By-->More.." option. Now that is definitely what I was looking for. Thank You!
