Sorting a nominal date and time

I have created a column for a nominal value for a date and time, however, it does not remain sorted by date and time. How do I sort this column appropriately?

Re: Sorting a nominal date and time

The issue is not that the data are nominal, but that the data is character. The easiest way to deal with this is to convert the datatype into a numeric date/time column, and then set the modeling type to nominal
