unable to sort date when some values  null  in date column

leakim971PluritechnicianCommented:
and for you a null value is greater of lower than a valid date?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

 
leakim971PluritechnicianCommented:
else you just need to test :

if( a == null ) a = new Date(1970,0,1); // or a = new Date(2200,0,1);
if( b == null ) b = new Date(1970,0,1);

Like numeric if its null its priority of ascending is set to first
similarly i want to sort data ascending if its set to null .

Example
                                          RESULTS
date  records      !           Asc             Desc
null                      !           null          02/08/1990
02/08/1988         !   02/08/1982     02/08/1988
02/08/1982         !     02/08/1988   02/08/1982
02/08/1990         !     02/08/1990             null

Tried this way ..
