Output variables in sequential order

Hello everyone,

I have created a large commercial PV simulation in SketchUp using the OpenStudio plugin with 237 rows of panels, and thus 237 PV generator objects. In EnergyPlus, the objects do not get ordered sequentially. Instead, they get ordered like this: 1,10,100,101,102...

Is there a way to change this? I am spending a lot of time fixing this manually in Excel when I do the data analysis. The rows are grouped together into arrays, and I am interested to know how each array is generating power. Thus, I need to add sequential rows together.

Thank you.
