here is my table
name, hash, phone
chris, random hasha, phone chris
george, random hashn, phone george
kyle, random hasha, phone kyle
sally, random hashn, phone sally
kathy, random hasha, phone kathy

After the table is sorted I want it sorted by the has id's with most frequently occurring at the top and by decending count
chris, random hasha, phone chris
kyle, random hasha, phone kyle
kathy, random hasha, phone kathy
george, random hashn, phone george
sally, random hashn, phone sally

Excel only gives me the option to sort numerically or alphanumerically, I want to sort by match and I want the items that match the most in descending order at the top of the list
