Need help with "sort" command

What would be the sort command if I wanted to sort the file by the last field (the fifth field)?

File sample:

,040606,20040401,            ,123456789,362 |
                                                           ^
                                                            |
                                                            |
                                                     This field

Thanks... the command was:

sort input.name -n -t, -k 5 -o output.name
