Try addition SORT ... AS TEXT. It works for me, but it depends on "locale text environment" (ABAP keyword documentation for more details):

  • Character-like components are sorted by default by their binary representation (code page). Textual sorting of character-like components can be performed using the addition AS TEXT.
