If you have only 4 records in your table or results of the query then I
recommend you do NOT use the POS attribute of OrderingLinks. This is a
feature designed for very large datasets.

Also, by putting the POS attribute value to 1 you are causing it to focus on
one character length. When dealing with numeric columns I don't recommend
you use this feature unless you are locked into a series of digits that will
always have the same number of digits, avoiding leading zeros. Then, you can
set the POS attribute value to match the number of digits. This way it will
all work together well. Otherwise, confusing results will develop with
