SEGP1. Export Points in sequential order

I am exporting a points shapefile to SEGP1. When I open the ascii files the points are all out of order. Is there any way to have the SEGP1 text written where it is organized by LINE_NAME then SHOTPOINT?

    I can think of a way to do this. First right-click on the point Shapefile in the Control Center and select to CALC ATTR to calculate a new attribute. Create one called LINE_SHOTPOINT (the name doesn't matter) that is the LINE_NAME with the SHOTPOINT appended to it. Then open the vector search dialog and sort the results on the new LINE_SHOTPOINT attribute. Then select everything, right-click and select to copy to the clipboard, then use Ctrl+V to paste into a new layer. They should be ordered by line name, then shotpoint, in the new layer. You can then close the original layer and export from the new one.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
