The result of sorting will not create a new window.But the same sort operation using the following JSL will produce a new window to display the sorted results.How do you make a JSL sorting operation not generate a new window?thank you!

dt = Current Data Table();

dt<<Sort(By(4),Order(descending));

Here is the example from the Scripting Index

Help==>Scripting Index

that illustrates the Replace Table option for the Sort Platform

```
Names Default To Here( 1 );
dt = Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp" );
dt << Sort(
replace table,
By( :name ),
Order( Ascending )
);
```

It's in the scripting index. Look for sort and you'll see all of the options.

```
dt = Open( "$sample_data\Big Class.jmp" );
dt << Sort( By( 4 ), Order( descending ), replacetable( 1 ) );
```
