Is there a way to order loaded dicom slices by file name?

When I load my dicom series into 3Dslicer the z order is shuffled, meaning that the slice location values are probably incorrect. however if I use other software to load them in order by the dicom file names, they are properly ordered. is there a way to get 3Dslicer to order slices based on their file names?

Filenames must be ignored when a volume is reconstructed from frames stored in DICOM file format. The only information that matters is the image position and orientation tags.

Do you have any problems when you load the image using the DICOM module?
