If the Array isn't to big a Bubble sort will do it.
 DECLARE FUNCTION StringArraySort (Array$(),lb%,Ub%)

 FUNCTION StringArraySort (Array$(),lb%,Ub%)
 ' Use only where  Ub%-Lb%<30
    for t=lb% to Ub%-1
        if Ucase$(array$(t)) > UCASE$(array$(t+1)) then
            swap array$(t) , array$(t+1)
        end if
    next t
 LOOP while flip

 I used to have a Key/step sort routine but the Bit bucket ate it..
