"Is there any possibility to sort the file without exporting the data?"

Within EpiData Entry: Define the ID field as a key

ID
 key unique
end

then after entering all data, export data (#6 in toolbar) to EpiData 
file and mark "use index as sort order"

In EpiData Analysis
read myfile
sort id
savedata  newfile
copyfile myfile.chk newfile.chk
