    i would like to sort a table of x- and y-coordinates so that it's sum-of-squares matches another like-table's sum-of-squares.

    do you already have columns which work out the sum of the squares or do you want this as part of the resulting formula ?

    so if you other like table looks something like :

    225 (rank = 4th)
    330 (rank = 2nd)
    290 (rank = 3rd)
    355 (rank = 1st)
    199 (rank = 5th)

    You want the first table where the value is 225 to be sorted so it's 4th, and the value of 355 to be sorted so it's 1st - totally based on the rank of position in the other table ?

    sorry for the questions, just making sure I try to give you a right way of doing it
