None of your previous threads with extremely similar questions gave you any ideas?

What you have you tried so far?

This makes some assumptions about the report format. Should work if it is as you indicated in your sample.


Code:
awk '
    BEGIN {
        sort = "sort -t \\| -k 2n,2 -k 4n,4 -k 5n,5"
    }
    /------/ {                  # use dashes to determine records to sort
        if( ++snarf > 2 )
        {
            close( sort );
            snarf = -1;
        }
        print;
        next;
    }
    {
         if(  snarf > 1 )
              print |sort;
          else
              print;
   }
' input-file
