in reply to Hash sort again!!

First question is - what do you think you're sorting? The hash itself? If so, you can't sort a hash. You can however sort a list of the keys or values. You might want to look at how sort works. It will "return" a sorted list. That means that you have to assign the sort to an array. Then that array will contain a sorted list of the keys.

Hope this helps..
