Data Driven Pages - Grids out of order

My data driven pages are sorted by OBJECTID. I do not currently have another field that is suitable for sorting.

The problem is that my pages do not follow any logical order, they'll skip around all across the grid since the OBJECTIDs are not in a
logical spatial order.

Is there a way to populate a field in the grid's attribute table so that the cells are number like reading a book (i.e. upper left most cell is 1, next one to the right is 2, and so on...)?

My grid is several hundred thousand cells so manually populating it is not possible.
