Subject   st: generating new sorted ID variable

Dear All, 

I have a variable called ID that goes from 1 through 60, and an X
variable that takes the same value within each ID value (I have an
unbalanced panel of about 50,000 obs). I want to create a new ID
variable that is sorted in ascending or descending order by X so that I
can do a sorted twoway bar graph. Or, better yet, is there a way to sort
twoway bar or rspike graphs? Sorted graphs seem to be an option for
'graph bar' but not for 'twoway bar'. Thanks for your help, Jose.  

For example: 

ID	X	SortedID or SortedID
1	4	2			2
1	4	2			2
1	4	2			2
2	7	1			3
3	2	3			1
3	2	3			1
