please post your code so that we can see exactly what you are doing.
"A simple bubble for each row" can be just about anything.
Are you talking about _sorting_ (which affects entire rows of the
dataset), or _replacing_ your data?  v1[i] < = v2[i] <=... v6[i] is
either true for each observation (i.e. row) or it's not true. If it't
not true, sorting (-help sort-) is not going to help.
