Sorting in a Table

You can rearrange the rows in a table by sorting the contents in a column alphabetically, or numerically, either in ascending or descending order. This capability can be helpful for arranging a list by last name, ZIP code, or item number.

If identical information appears in several rows of a selected column, Word arranges the rows in the order of the original table. In this situation, you might prefer to create a secondary sort that arranges those rows in the order that you prefer. For example, you want to sort by last name, but in the case of identical last names, you want the list sorted by first name. The primary sort would be for last name, and the secondary sort would be for first name.
