Reduction of choices available based on previously chosen VL choices

If my grammar in the title is anything like my calc syntax I'm in BIG trouble. :D

Please refer to the attachment. The plan is to let users, using FMP 9.x, enter then select their search criteria for use in a report; the Custom VL List for all three text fields (named Sort_Choice1, Sort_Choice2, and Sort_Choice3) contains the same labels as what you see on-screen: Date Range, School, Grade, Period, Teacher, Student, and Attendance Code.

What I want to do is prevent users from selecting a choice more than once. For example, if s/he picks Date Range for the primary sort and High School for the secondary sort, I don't want the goof to pick Date Range or High School again for the Tertiary choice. So, I don't know how to approach and solve the problem: Should I create a convoluted calc with test fields so as a choice is made it's eliminated from the available list choices, or...?

With script triggers this would be a little easier to put together but because it's v9.x, well...

TIA for your help and input!
