how can i sort in decreasing order?

i did the sort is in increasing order

typedef struct{
        char name[30];
        CARd hand[3];
        CARd biggest_card;
        int nro_victories;
        }PLAYER;

PLAYER h;
int m, i, j, k;
for(i=0; i<n_playeres-1; i++)
              {
                  k = j;
                  m = h[i].nro_victories;
                  for(j=i+1; j<n_players; j++)
                  {
                      if(h[j].nro_victories < m)
                      {
                          m = h[j].nro_victories;
                          k = j;
                      }
                  }
              h[k].nro_victories = h[i].nro_victories;
              h[i].nro_victories = m;
              }

(if there is any undeclare variable just ignore.. it's because i forgot here, but it's all in my program)

when i try to print the data of the player, i have a problem with the number of victories
line 79: print number of victories
the first time of the loop it's correct, shows the number of victories(int)
but in the second until the end shows the address (i dont know of what) and dont know why

in line 91 i'm trying to print the players in decreasing order of victories
but how i print the names in the correct order too?

somebody help me! pleeeease
i cant figure out why prints the address in number of victories
it only prints right in the first time of the loop

You didn't post the program - you posted "something like it".

So it's not just a snippet of code which shows the problem, and it's also not the whole program.

I'm not going to waste time with it. Your quote:

(if there is any undeclare variable just ignore.. it's because i forgot here, but it's all in my program)

thanks, Adak
you're very polite

i didnt post my entire code because its gigant and its all in portuguese

you didnt notice that i post all about the error?!
if you dont wanna help, please dont disturb
