    sorting arrays

    i have to loop through multiple records and add in both a date and description.

    How can i do this?
    then my real question is - once i do this and have multidimensional array with dates and description -- how can I sort the array by date (and what format does the date have to be stored in to sort )


    Please advise?

    I think you'll have to create your own sorting algorithm. Here is a link to an example to do so with a 2-dimensional array.

    2D Array Sort

    If you can store your dates as strings in the format "2007-09-04 13:43:00" you'll be able to sort them alphanumerically.
