I guess it wasn't, because when I created a calculated field based on the number field and used the getasnumber function, it sorted properly. I guess I thought the act of importing numbers into a number field would make them numbers, but I guess that's now how it works.

No, importing numbers into a text field does not change the field type. You must DEFINE the field type as number.
