did you check the help file ?
   listviewname.Sort ( sorttype, { column } )
That didnt help you ?

Try using userdefined! as the sorttype, and put your sort logic in the Sort event.
Alternatively are you using pfc then you could inherit from  u_lvs( it uses a datastore , so sort is default included)

/* Get the name of the object the pointer is over.     */
ls_col = this.GetObjectAtPointer()

/* Get the tab position                                                              */
li_pos = Pos(ls_col, "~t")

/* Check last 2 characters                                                        */
ls_col = Left(ls_col, li_pos - 1)

/* if not a column heading, then return                                */
if NOT Lower(Right(ls_col, 2)) = "_t" then Return

/* Assumed that heading name is column name + "_t".       */
/* Remove the last to characters to get the column        */
/* name and then sort by it. If the sort criteria             */
/* matches the previous sort, then reverse it.                   */
ls_col  = Left(ls_col, Len(ls_col) - 2)
ls_sort = ls_col + " A"
