In Informatica 8.1 there is an option under the Properties tab of the Source Qualifier called Number of Sorted Ports.  (It may exist in previous version but don't know for sure.) This field is set to 0 by default, but you can increase it to the number of columns you wish to sort by.  You will need to put the primary column to sort by in the first port, and the next column in the second port and so on for the number of sorted ports you define.  I know this works when the source is a database.  It basically adds an order by clause to the SQL it generates.
