I am trying to sort a multidimensional array of strings  with a variable number of columns.

I concatenate the columns and place them in the array at a fixed column position.
When I try to sort with array_multisort, using this column, I get the error:

Warning: array_multisort() [function.array-multisort]: Argument #2 is expected to be an array or a sort flag


for ( $i = 0 ; $i < count($set) ; $i++ )
        {
                $blob="";

                        for ( $j = 0 ; $j < count($set[$i]) ; $j++ )
                            {
                                      
                                       $blob=$blob . $set[$i][$j]["tindex"];
                                      
                            }
                            $set[$i][100]["tindex"]=$blob;


array_multisort($set,$set[0][100]["tindex"]);

Try this co to see if it is working:
array_multisort($set, SORT_ASC, $set[0][100]["tindex"], SORT_DESC);
