How do I sort a matrix that contains first & last names, into alphabetical order of last name without using the sort command? I have a matrix of 2 columns but different lengths of names. But I need to put them in alphabetic order by last name without using the builtin sort function command. Maybe by using Find and char?

Just write your own sort function if you can't use the builtin. It's one of the standard algorithmic recipes with loads of different implementations that you can easily lookup.
