I believe its MySQL v 4.0.18 ..

However I think it might be your query:

SELECT * FROM table ORDER BY CAST(mid(name, 6, LENGTH(c) -5) AS unsigned)

How do I implement the query to take the length of name instead of 6 as the total length.
What is the variable c used for ? length(c)

Instead of -5 i think its better to grab the length of name and subtract one

Maybe that would reduce the errors?
