Hi Statalist

I have two variables x1 and x2 identified by the variable y. Then I sort the data on x1, so that the observation with the lowest value of x1 comes first. 
How can I tell stata to allocate the x2 values so that the lowest x2 is assigned the observation with the lowest x1 etc? This is not the same as sorting by x1 and x2, as I need to reallocate the variables within observations.
