Sort

Hi All,
I am using the QuickSort algorithm to sort an array with strings in it. There are 7500 records but soon there will be 180,000 records. I started running it last night and when I came into work this morning it was only 72% done. Is there a faster way to sort an array. Or maybe I am using QuickSort wrong. Right now I have a loop reading a text file and putting the data into an array. Every time it loops I call QuickSort. Do I need to do it this way or do I just call QuickSort once. Here is the code I am using:

        Do Until (EOF(2))
            Line Input #2, theLine
            dataArray(x) = theLine
            Call QuickSort(dataArray)
            x = x + 1
        Loop

Thank You,
Kent

Just call QuickSort once outside the loop.

So my code wuold look like this:
       Do Until (EOF(2))
           Line Input #2, theLine
           dataArray(x) = theLine
           x = x + 1
       Loop

       Call QuickSort(dataArray)
Is this correct?
Thank You,
Kent
