Sort twice within the same dataset

I'm working with a really large data set and I was hoping to write some code to sort within the same data set twice. This might sound confusing but specifically what I'm trying to do is sort one column, and while keeping the sort for that row, I want to sort another column.
If anyone is aware of a way to do this, please let me know.

Well, it's certainly not totally clear what you mean -- but if you mean sort by multiple columns, see sortrows, the optional second argument, column

"If you can make something of it though, let me know"
No it's your data, no one can do "'something of it"
So you discover that your importation reverses date and month and has missing date in the data base. It has nothing with the original question you asked about sorting.
It seems you can accept dpb answer and move on, and ask another question if you are stuck by other issues.

Well he asked for the data. I was ready to move on after the third message because I realized there were issues with the data itself.
