In brief, you can -reshape-, -sort- and -reshape-

I have a large dataset with 5 variables that contains number in random order:
v1 v2 v3 v4 v5
28 1 25 22 14
23 2 3 34 39
6 16 8 24 19
3 45 8 1 37
4 23 27 33 10
16 41 33 13 21
...................................
................................



I want to sort them in such a way that the v1[i]<v2[i]<v3[i]<v4[i]<v5[i] for each i:

1 14 22 25 28
2 3 23 34 39
......
