The VisPro spreadsheet does not have a sorting function. You have to do it by
yourself: get the cells data, sort it, send it back to spreadsheet.

Same as above. get the cells data write to file.

Do You know VPReport. This may help much.
BTW. : I myself wasn't verry happy with the VisPro spreadsheet, esp. with the
user interface. To enhance it in several ways, i created a REXX-callable DLL
to sublass a spreadsheet at runtime. The DLL with a sample project can be
found at the VisPro CIS:forum lib (OS2AVEN Lib: 8 Hockware) as EXTSPSHT.ZIP.
If you dont't have access to the CIS:forum let me know, i can send it to You
