Chapter 7. Creating Tables > Sorting Table Contents

Sorting Table Contents

It’s not uncommon to enter data into a table, then add more data, and then want to sort the whole thing. You asked for it, Contribute can do it. The program sorts by any column in your table, either numerically or alphabetically, in ascending or descending order, and can sort on two successive criteria.

There are some limitations to Contribute’s sorting abilities. You cannot sort merged cells, and Contribute doesn’t have the ability to sort part of a table, so you can’t, for example, have the program ignore the merged cells you used for your table’s title. Contribute displays an error message if you try to sort a table containing merged cells.
