Hello,

The main issue is with the Date Column. Changing the Ascending/Descending aspect is pretty easy, but that date format is probably not going to be very usable for most. Excel doesn't seem to be able to format that date differently, so unless you can find a converter to change that date to something else (like YYYY-MM-DD) you would probably have to manually change the dates to make it readable.

Here is a modified version of the CSV file that should work - https://gofile.io/?c=OFT45B

Keep in mind this basically took Finding and Replacing the years (Finding 2020, replacing with 2020- and so on) as well as finding and replacing the month (Finding Jan, replacing with 01-31 and so on). Probably could do with even less replacing by just doing Find Jan and replace with -01-31 and so on.

Afterward opening in Excel and sorting the date column.
