Order of da.UpdateCursor

I'd like to manipulate the order the update cursor loops through my attribute table.

At the moment, my code looks as follows:


with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor(lyr, column) as cursor:

        for row in cursor:

            row[0] = i

            i = i+1



where "lyr" is my layer and "column" is my column where the cursor needs to update the data. at the moment loops through and adds 1 as it needs but it does it in the order of the Object ID. I have an other column named "Nummer" where I have Numbers (Doulbe). The coursor should update the rows following those numbers (from 1 to x). How can I do it?


I tried "with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor(lyrkartenausschn, seitenzkartenausschn,"","","", sql_clause=(None, 'ORDER_BY Nummer A') as cursor: "

And also without all of those "", "", and also with "ORDER BY"  and with/without the "A". But it always gives me an error.


Can anyone help me fixing this part of the code?


thanks! :-D
