Hi Klaus
I've been there and the only solution I found was to maintain
a second array :

  put 0 into x
  put "abc" into array1[60]
  add 1 to x
  put 60 into array2[x]
  put "xyz" into array1[30]
  add 1 to x
  put 30 into array2[x]

  put the keys of array2 into tkeys
  sort lines of tkeys ascending numeric
  repeat for each line j in tkeys
    put array1[array2[j]] & return after myvar
  end repeat

You can also use a two-dimentional array instead
of 2 separate arrays...
