vValue: String containing the characters which are to be sorted based upon their ASCII values. Function returns Null if vValue is Null or cannot be fixed up to a String.

Algotithm: This function sorts the characters through distribution counting.
Note: Function uses the ASCII value of characters to determine if they match, which is in effect the same as using Binary comparisons.
Note: Function currently only works for characters whose ASCII value is between 0 and 255, so it does NOT support UNICODE.
