I missed the part where you mentioned
Save Format, but that also means you’re using ACF4. Sorry for the oversite.
If you want to be able to sort by this field then you need to set the save format to something that can be sorted. To sort by a date in WP the format must be YYYY-MM-DD. to sort by but number or text the saved value still needs to be similar. Year, Month, Day.
This is likely one of the reasons why the save format was removed from ACF5.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
