Sort a table by the results of two columns

Is there a way to sort a table by the results of two columns?

In the first column I have the results of our delivery reliability evaluation. In the second column I have the quantity of our deliveries. Now I would like to sort the table. At row one I would like to have the lowest result of the first column with the highest result of the second column. Providing that there is more than one position with the same result in column one.

Example:

Before sorting:
Column 1      Column 2
30%              5
20%              2
40%              1
20%              1
60%              4
50%              3
20%              3
20%              2

After sorting:

Column 1      Column 2

20%              3

20%              2

20%              2

20%              1

30%              5

40%              1

50%              3

60%              4

I hope someone of you can help me to fix my problem!

Another method would be to create a third calculated column:

`Column 3 = ([Column 1] * 100) + (1/[Column 2])`

Interesting problem. One way would be to use a Matrix and sort by Column 2.
