```I have another question. I have 3 variables v1 v2 v3 and 3 keys a1 a2
a3. So now I want for each row, v1 v2 v3 sorted according to a1 a2 a3.

ie. If for some row I have  a2 < a1 is < a3 then I want v1 to have the
value v2 , v2 to have the value of v1 and v3 as it is in that row.

Would you know how to do this ?

Thank you,
Ashim.
