You will need some form of EBCDIC collation to make SQL sort in the same way as IBM.
The standard collations used by Windows, Linux, and SQL Server have numbers before letters, see the ANSI spec. Most IBM machines use the EBCDIC spec, which has letters before numbers.
If your data is currently held in ANSI format you will have to reload all of it to get it into EBCDIC format. This is not a trivial exercise and you should research this fully before attempting it.
