Are you sorting by something logical?  
As in descending order of numeric value, or something like that?

Otherwise it might be difficult to do.
Could you be a bit more specific?

Dear All,
I have a quick (and probably simple) question: I would like to "sort" my
dataset over several variables. At the moment my dataset looks like this
(very simplified example):

Var1   Var2   Var3    Var4 
1000   3000   2000    500

And should look like this:

Var1    Var2    Var3    Var4
500      1000    2000    3000    

Thank you for any advice and help.
Simon
