NC Drill Files - Algorithm/Order?

Just wondering if there is a specific Algorithm or sorting routing used internally in ACE to arrange Drill Data upon export?

We usually use a macro to sort this export into data readable by our machines but on more detailed jobs find the export order a bit erratic? eg. a lot of jumping around from aperture to aperture when processing.

I cannot find any settings in program to change sort order.
We have tried both standard CAD outputs (with Blocks/Cells) and fully exploded/purged CAD outputs with drill data only.
Both types have different outputs but both are still not 100% logical.

Before re-writing our macro to smooth out this problem, is there a setting i am missing?
Or if not, could someone explain ACE's logic for sorting/exporting drill data.
