    You will get better results from us if you expend just a little more effort yourself. In this case winnowing your sample data down to just enough data to show the important test cases (probably three records in this case) would have helped a lot. Even better would be to reduce the problem to the essential components (sort by two fields) and provide suitable data for the sample problem rather than a mass of 'real' data that obscures the problem and the solution.

    True laziness is hard work
