This is all explained clearly and concisely by Roger
Newson in

Newson, R. 2004. Stata tip 5: Ensuring
programs preserve dataset sort order.
Stata Journal 4(1): 94.
This Stata Tip can now (as of today) be downloaded as a post-publication draft from my website (see below), using a browser or the Stata -net- command. However, you should all ideally get the latest issue 4(1) of The Stata Journal, which contains lots of other useful things apart from Stata Tip 5. The contents of this and previous issues can be found on the Stata Journal website at
