I've added in an attribute table to a print layout and am trying to sort numerically ascending using Plot Order

enter image description here

enter image description here

For some reason it doesn't change order whatever field I use to sort the items in the table. It seems to be stuck sorting on Feature_ID which I can't edit.

I'm using QGIS version 3.14.16-Pi

Can someone direct me where I might be going wrong?

You can solve it quite simple: Just add a double quotation " to fields having a whitespace in its title: Plot Order --> "Plot Order". Then it recognizes the field correctly and sorts your attribute table correctly.
