Thanks Peter. But I live in a very conservative county. None of yer fancy diagonals here. NW indeed!
Actually it is the County election database, and a search reveals only N, E, S, and W.
I think I finally get the phrase "by .... of each". Live Code does pretty much what I did, except I'm sure they don't use a bubble sort.
