Rules in Alphabetic Filing Part 11

In the previous post¬†we have learned how todeal with letters that are used together to form a name. In this post, we’ll learn how to file names with numbers.

Rule 11:

I. Numeric names are always filed as though spelled out.
II. Numbers of more than two digits are given their proper numeric value.

Consider the following examples:

1 Happy Market
A 7 Driving School
9th Flr. Bar
456 Repair Shop
3229 Bldg.

They are filed by unit as:

A Seven Driving School
Four Hundred Fifty Six Repair Shop (NOT Four Five Six Repair Shop)
Ninth Flr. Bar
One Happy Market
Three Thousand Two Hundred Twenty Nine Building (NOT Three Two Two Nine Building)
