Using the first option that you say:

In my case I have done
Code:
set -- $( printf "%s\n" dn_rad_flux* | sort -k1.5n ); paste "$@" > dn_rd.dat

But do not paste in order, because I finally have:
Code:
file10 file1 file20 file3 .....

And the second case, in my case I have done:

Code:
set -- $(for f in name{1..65}.dat;do [ -f "$f" ]&&printf "%s\n" "$f";done); paste "$@" > dn_rd.dat

I have the same. Smilie

As already stated, you have to change the sort key if your filename is
different from the example you posted first.
(if the filename is dn_rad_flux_42.dat --> sort -k1.13)
