... more stuff here ...
... probly use RETAINs to build your composite records ....
(and if you need to re-use the order)
if FIRST.REC_NUMB then SORT_ORD+1;
should work for you.
There's a lot of mileage in various NOTSORTED tricks. (Although maybe if SI
had called it "presorted" instead of "notsorted" some of them would have
been more intuitively obvious.)
