Greetings Clipsters!
I have about a thousand coordinates I would like to sort in reverse order.
How would you suggest I go about that?

Sample:
-79.7962560949221,39.5034318624616,0
-79.7963859014283,39.5034814389697,0
-79.7970197879323,39.5037059595619,0
-79.7979009449095,39.5040388009614,0
-79.7984644303751,39.5042449905803,0
-79.7989934019142,39.5044450976328,0

Hi John,
I tried that, but it groups all the zeros together.
Thanks,

• I don t understand. Give me before and after please. Are you using the first or second coordinate? Do you mean descending or reverse the entire string?

Unclear to me sorry.
