sorting by property metadata of type String


for all of my documents I've got an attribute filled with numbers. It's of the type "String". Now I have built an iView listing the documents and showing this property. I also want to sort it by this property.

To get the right result the type should be "Integer" cause using "String" it would be sort like this:

199, 270, 33, 450, 6, 83, 9

How can I duplicate or import the property into a new property consisting of type "Integer" or how can I force him to know that "33" ist smaller than "270"?

I recognized that I'm able to change the Type into "Integer". But the result after sorting ist still as like as using letters (Type=String).
