in reply to Sort CSV file within Excel based on specific column

No need to open a CSV file in Excel. Use Text::CSV/Text::CSV_XS. Read read the lines, put then in a hash keyed by your sort column, sort the keys, and print the lines.

    Done this way, wouldn't the OP lose a csv row if two entries from the sort column are the same?

      Yes, I suppose the hash is unnecessary.
