I replaced the columns header in a list view with button

the action passes the name of the column(field)  into a variable called $ fldname

and I would like it if I dod not have to hardcopy the fieldname in the sort


My script

Gets the parameter (filename)

Then decided if desc or ascending by a $$ field

Sort records by field ( direction ; $fldname)


What am I missing?
