Chapter 3. Formatting Documents > Sorting Table Contents or Lists

Sorting Table Contents or Lists

After you enter contents in a table or create a bulleted or numbered list, you can reorganize the information by sorting the information. For example, you might want to sort information in a client list alphabetically by last name or numerically by their last invoice date. Ascending order lists information from A to Z, earliest to latest, or lowest to highest. Descending order lists information from Z to A, latest to earliest, or highest to lowest. You can sort a table columns based on one or more adjacent columns. A sort, for example, might be the telephone directory numerically by area code and then alphabetically by last name.

Sort Table Contents or Lists

Select the table column, adjacent columns, or list you want to sort.

Click the Table menu, and then click Sort.

If necessary, click the Sort By list arrow, and then select a column name.

Click the Type list arrow, and then click table cell content type.

Click the Ascending or Descending option.

If necessary, click the second Sort By list arrow, select another column name, and then select the related sorting options you want.

Click the Header Row or No Header Row option as it applies to the table.

Click OK.
