## Re: Any Possibility to validae the sorting function (sorting with date)

for a descending sort it would be something like this

sorted = true

x = first date

y = second date

while (y is not empty) and (sorted is true)

if x > y then

log.message sort is good

if y = lastdateinlist then

set y = empty

else

set x = y

set y = nextdate

else

set sorted = false
