There is a great tool for all yout sorting needs...

Its called a Recordset... Just fill in all data about the files you have and sort by the fields you want by just telling which fields you want...

This example only cares about name & Date


Dim oRS As New Recordset
oRS.Fields.Append "name", adVarChar, 255
oRS.Fields.Append "date", adDate

Set oFolder = ofso.GetFolder("c:\winnt")
For Each oFile In oFolder.Files
        oRS("name").Value = oFile.Name
        oRS("date").Value = oFile.DateLastModified
oRS.Sort = "date asc"

While Not oRS.EOF
    Debug.Print oRS("name"), oRS("date")
