Good idea. Would also be useful when importing text file data that is supposed to be sorted.

 

But then, you also need some way to take action if the validation fails. An automatic macro variable wouldn't  be a good idea since many datasets may be produced by a single data step. Maybe VALIDATESORT=WARNING, VALIDATESORT=ERROR.

Even a note reading that the validation failed. The error will come at the next step when the data isn't as expected.
