    In a simple 3 x column word table, there seems to be no option to sort
    highlighted numbers in one column by ascending order

    Select the table. In Word 97-2003, click Table | Sort and choose which
    column to sort by.

    If you are using Word 2007, the Sort command is on the Home tab, in the
    Paragraph group.

    This doesn't account for the fact that Word (2003) sorts each numeric digit as a character, so you get results such as:
    1
    11
    12
    120
    125
    13

    In the Sort dialog box, you can have Word sort based on numeric content.

    Do note that Word always sorts whole rows, based on column content.
