Chapter 37. Sorting Data > Returning a Sort to the Original Order

Returning a Sort to the Original Order

When you want to sort a list or database but later return it to the original order, you need to add a record index to the list. A record index assigns a number to each record according to the record's position, its date and time of entry, or some other unique numeric record indicator. Figure 37.4 shows an index in column A for a database. You can insert a column or cells to make room for an index next to any list or database. (This method does not help databases that have been split by incorrect sorting.)
