Hi, I have these two vectors, vector1 and vector2. I need to have vector2 sorted by a positions vector, given by a vector1. e.g. vector1 ={32,4,28,11,20} position_vector1= Ordering[vector1] position_vector1 = {5,1,4,2,3} vector2 = {78,12,95,14,35} requested output {35,78,14,12,95} that is, I have this position vector, as an output from another calculation; then i need my input vector to be sorted as the position vector says. Obviously, my real input vector is quite bigger so i can't sort it manually... I hope the small example can explain my problem better than my words...
