Chapter 13. Organizing Concepts in Tables > Sorting Your Table Data

Sorting Your Table Data

One of the great things about Word tables is that they provide more than a clear way of organizing data—they also give you a means of reorganizing data. Word includes a Sort function, so you can easily reorder the information in your table by searching and sorting on certain key words or phrases. You might, for example, want to organize a conference registration list by sorting first according to state and then alphabetically by last name.

The easiest way to sort data in a Word table is to simply click in the table and click Sort Ascending or Sort Descending on the Tables And Borders toolbar. If you want to use Word to perform a more specialized sort, you can display the Sort dialog box (shown in Figure 13-14) by clicking in the table and then choosing Table, Sort. The Sort dialog box provides you with the means to sort by three different fields, data types, and document elements.
