Hi- I am trying to sort the attached exported data first by work date estimate (col b) ascending (which is fiscal year quarter) and then by Invoice (col c)  descending... but it doesn't seem to sort that way.  What am I missing?

It seems like the work date sorts ok,,though I would rather have the FY14 at the end... but then within the quarters the dollars are not sorting descending.

Take a look at the Work Date Est values in cells B13 and B14

the value in 14 has a number of trailing spaces, that's the problem.

B13 = "Q1 - FY13"
B14 = "Q1 - FY13 "
