Format and sorting of lookup table - does it make a difference to performance?

I have the below lookup table where DocumentNumber is unique.

 

Question:

Does it make a difference to the speed in which a lookup can be done, if I were to (1) change the type of DocumentNumber to a whole number; (2) sort DocumentNumber?

Thanks,
