Excel has always coped really well with sorting data and has been the preferred choice for a number of people but sometimes you may need to present the data differently and Word might be the best option. Data in Word can still be sorted, especially if it’s been entered in a table.
To sort the data in a table you will need to select the entire table by clicking the four-headed that appears in the top left corner of the table when you hover over it.
Click the Home tab and click the Sort icon in the Paragraph section.
The Sort dialog box will be displayed. If your table contains headings, ensure that ‘Header row’ is selected in the My list has section – this will then populate each of the Sort by fields with the column headings.
Choose how you want each of the columns to be sorted e.g. Ascending or Descending and click OK.
