well that sort of worked.
"End of Report" was still included in the sort.

Also how can I sort the second column by the last two charecters and then by the first one?

Thanks again for all your help!

nawk ' 
   BEGIN {
     stderr="cat 1>&2"
     print "List\n" "AL\n" "AM\n" | stderr
  /EAST/ {print $3, $2}
  END {print "End of Report" | stderr }' "${1}" | sort -k1,2

I'll leave the rest for you to experiment with 'sort' - good luck!
