It has both date fields and the string *NEVER* .. Can i sort this field in descending order of date and move all *NEVER* records to the botton of the file??? Is it possible to do this using a COBOL program or easytrieve...??

since numbers are represented as hex F0 (0) thru F9 (9) and letters/special characters are represented as hex C1 (A) thru E?,
you are not going to be able to desc sort without changing the value of '*never*' to something like '9never*'.
