Assuming the items are TAB delimited, all you need to do is create a 
header button (2nd column in this example) and put the following script 
in it:
on mouseUp
   set the itemDelimiter to tab
   sort lines of field "Field Name" by item 2 of each
end mouseUp

I haven't worked with dragging yet so I'll let someone else answer that.
