looking for a smart approach to "sort" an array

True,  wasn't sure the field would still be available. I think the O.P.
mentioned  rebuilding the list in user order at a later time (as in from a
later program run) by loading the array data from a file.  By storing the
list from the field as part of the array data, it carries the user index
along with the data being indexed.  (could store the list many ways, but
all of them require a way to actually save the list between runs, if I
understand what I read)
