Default Sorting alpha numeric data

I have a very large data base (9,000 +) with a column of numbers such as:
K-8345-08; B-8346-08; O-8347-08. Is it possible to sort this data by number
only and ignore the letter and hyphen? Can this be done with out adding a
secondary column?

I think you'll need the helper column.
