Sort Command


sort <dataSheet> by {<row> | <column>}
[ascending | descending][as number] Applies to datasheets


The sort command sorts the specified dataSheet by the row or column identified by <row | column>. You can sort a dataSheet in either ascending or descending order; the default order is ascending.


The following command sorts the dataSheet by its first column, in descending order. Because the [as number] clause is used, the data is sorted numerically.
