Find criteria must contain at least one sort field value.

I thought this solution looked correct by an expert, but I am getting the error in the subject line. I added the sort, but it doesn't seem to help. Basically I am trying to push the contents of currentAc2Object into ac1 (make it a part of the currentAc1Object). The marketingPromoCode & sourceCode is what I am making the match on.

The data in the two ArrayCollections come from two different data sources, but I want to display them on one row in a datagrid.

Anyways, why does it even fail on sort? I haven't seen one example on google where they were using getItemIndex and it needed to sort. or addItemAt. Whether I have that sort there or not, I get the same error....

var ac2:ArrayCollection = analyticsView.reports;
var sort:Sort = new Sort();
sort.fields = [new SortField("marketingPromoCode", true)];
ac1.sort = sort;
ac1.refresh();
 
trace("received promo data");
for(var h:int; h < ac1.length; h++)
{
	
   for(var k:int; k < ac2.length; k++) 
   {
   	  if(ac1[h].marketingPromoCode == ac2[k].sourceCode)
      {
      	trace("Match " + ac2[k]); //Returns a ReportVO object
        ac1.addItemAt( ac2[k], h );
        trace("Finish");
         break;
      }
   }
}

Are the ArracyCollections empty? Can you put the sort code inside an if condition that checks the length of the ArrayCollection..

The error might come from this code line:

>>    if(ac1[h].marketingPromoCode == ac2[k].sourceCode)

What kind of object's are 'marketingPromoCode' and 'sourceCode'? Just String's? Or instances of some custom class?

No they aren't empty. and those two fields I am comparing against are strings. I will try putting the sort inside an if to see what happens

Sorry about the delay. But here is the final answer I came up with.
var currentAc1Object:Object;
					var currentAc2Object:Object; 
					var ac1:ArrayCollection = this._reportProxy.allPromoData;
					var ac2:ArrayCollection = analyticsView.reports;
					var sort:Sort = new Sort();
					sort.fields = [new SortField("marketingPromoCode", true)];
					ac1.sort = sort;
					ac1.refresh();
					sort.fields = [new SortField("sourceCode", true)];
					ac2.sort = sort;
					ac2.refresh();
 
					for(var h:int; h < ac2.length; h++)
					{
					   for(var k:int; k < ac1.length; k++) 
					   {
					   	  if(ac2[h].sourceCode == ac1[k].marketingPromoCode)
					      {
					      	ac2[h].eventLog = ac1[k];
					         break;
					      }
					   }
					}

I just created a property in the Value Object called eventLog, and made it an instance of another value object.
