MSFlexgrid countingsort

Dear Experts, I have a MSFlexGrid1 With 5 colums of integer data, max integer is 1 to 50.
I would like to countsort these colums, so that I end up with a list in a second MSFlexgrid2, of the counted and sorted data like the list below. In the second MSFlexgrid2 there should be only two colums as shown below. The code will need to identify the individual numbers from 1 to 50, and show how many times they are repeated in the 5 columns. I am using vb6. Your help would be appreciated, thank you.

Number    Frequency
1              80
2              65
3              45
4              90
etc           etc
50            120

Version 2:

Private Sub Command1_Click()

  On Error GoTo Err_Handler

  Dim c As Long
  Dim r As Long
  Dim nValue As Long
  Dim nCountColumns As Long
  Dim aNumers(1 To 50) As Long
  nCountColumns = 5
  With MSFlexGrid1
      nValue = 0
      For r = 1 To .Rows - 1
          For c = 0 To nCountColumns - 1
              If Len(.TextMatrix(r, c)) > 0 Then
                  If IsNumeric(.TextMatrix(r, c)) Then
                      nValue = Val(.TextMatrix(r, c))
                      If (nValue > 0) And (nValue <= 50) Then
                          aNumers(nValue) = aNumers(nValue) + 1
                      End If
                  End If
              End If
          Next c
      Next r
  End With
  Call FillCountGrid(aNumers(), MSFlexGrid2)
  Exit Sub

  Debug.Print "ERROR (Command1_Click): " & CStr(Err.Number) & ", " & Err.Description

End Sub

I am sorry but I am New to all this, however the first solution gave only zeros for the frequency on the second flexgrid. While solution 2 gave the frequencies of the balls as per requested by me. Thank you for your help, and I look forward to using experts again in the future.
