a) If you right-click on any column header a list of options appear. Choose "Add your own columns" (the last one). A new window will open, listing all your columns.

b) Press "Add a user-defined column" (at the bottom or the green "+").

c) Another window will appear. Choose a lookup name (e.g. "sort") and a column heading (e.g. "Sort"). For column type choose "Column built from other columns".

d) Copy the template from my first post to "Template". If you want to create your own templates I strongly recommend to read the Calibre template language manual.

e) Choose "Text" in the "Search column by" field.

SEE THE ATTACHED SCREENSHOT FOR AN OPTICAL REPRESENTATION OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

f) Click "OK". You will return to the last window. Click "Apply". When you're asked choose "Restart calibre now"

g) Calibre will restart. Your "Sort" column should now be visible. Click it's header once to sort ascending or twice to sort descending.
