2003 Excel formula

dddw asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I need help sorting the attached spreadsheet.  I need records to have the dates in sequential order.  For example, record 8 on the attached spreadsheet has two dates that are out of sequential order.  It should read 3/22/1996, 11/16/2000, 3/7/2002, 2/17/2005, 12/13/2007, & 9/9/2010.  The dates in rose color are out of order.  I've highlighted 3 records that have this problem as examples but it occurs throughout the data and appears random.

I'm sure there is an Excel formula that can correct this but not sure how.  Please help!
