Sort order precedence  changing

Hi All,
We recently upgraded to QlikView version 12.40 and have noticed the sort order appears to have changed.
When sorting values, in Ascending(A->Z) order, in a listbox, text containing an underscore appear to be sorted with a higher precedence then text that contains a hyphen/dash in the same position.

i.e in a listbox, sorting in asc order,  100_A is sorted ahead of 100-A where as in previous version of QV the sort order is in line with the standard Ascii sort order where 100-A appears ahead of 100_A.

Has there been a change in how QV evaluates text?
