Hi John, I left a comment on your YouTube channel but wanted to thank you again. I was messing with an identical problem for a few days. Per my youtube comment, I had to add the keys as indices since the numerical indices were causing issues. Thank you again.

Thanks John
How do I extend this to sort by multiple keys? e.g age, then name.
