Let's say that we have a small table with two columns: Column A=Name
and Column B=Value.

Adam   45
Bert     42
Caesar 90
David   33

The values could be anything, let's say points in some game. Of course
we want to sort the list:
Caesar 90
Adam   45
Bert     42
David   33

Okay, now they play another round of their game, and their points now
increased in most cases:
Caesar  90 (he blew it completely, didn't he…? ☺)
Adam  103
Bert    111
David   96

Now I want to illustrate how their positions changed by drawing lines
between them.
First I just copy their names to column D, so their order is the same
as after their last game, in this case as above with Caesar first and
David last.
Then entering their points, just like I did above.
Now I draw lines: B1↔D1, B2↔D2 and so on.
Caesar 90 —— Bert    111
Adam   45 —— Adam 103
Bert     42 —— David   96
David   33 —— Caesar 90

As the very last step I sort D1:E4.
Caesar 90 \  /  Bert    111
Adam   45 -\/– Adam 103
Bert     42  / \ /David   96
David   33    / \Caesar 90

However, this is not what happens. No lines are moved at any
direction. Is there a way to do this?

Kind regards
