Please re-read the help page for `order` _and_ the one for `sort`,  
examine their differences,  re-read the replies you have gotten so

does not arrive, then repeat the above process until it does.

Many (if not most)  of us do. We try to avoid having r-help becoming a  
homework tutoring site, however. You should be using your academic  
resources for this effort.
