      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

      Thanks,

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

      ... I don t understand. If you sample is representative of your real lines, then John s solution ought to work. If there are problem lines, that aren t sorted

        I don't understand. If you sample is representative of your real lines,
        then John's solution ought to work. If there are problem lines, that
        aren't sorted right, please include them.

        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?
