There are a number of different ways you can sort an array.
Excel Sort is definitely the fastest.
This transfers the array to a worksheet, sorts the array and then transfers it back to the array.
Bubble Sort uses a 'swapping' strategy to repeatedly swap the adjacent elements if they are in wrong order.
The Bubble sort is reasonably fast with small arrays but for larger arrays (> 5,000) forget it !!
Counting Sort uses a 'counting' strategy to count the number of occurrences of each unique element in the array.
Quick Sort uses a 'divide and conquer' strategy to divide a list into two sub-lists.
The Quick Sort is fast when the array needs a lot of sorting.
If the array is partially sorted this may not be the fastest algorithm.
