Ever find yourself wanting to alphabetize a list in MS Word?
How did you accomplish that?
I know there are at least a couple of you who moved everything around manually, am I right? And I don’t have to tell you twice that if the list was really long, it took you quite awhile to do. What a pain!
Well, how about letting Word alphabetize for you?
No problem! With just a highlight and a couple of clicks, you’ll have the whole list sorted instantly.
Highlight the text/list to be alphabetized. (If you need to sort the whole document, you can skip this step. With nothing highlighted, Word will select everything once you complete the next step).
For Word 2007 users, you need to click the Sort button found in the Paragraph section on the Home ribbon.
If you’re using older versions of MS Word, you need to select the Sort choice from the Table menu.
Everyone should find that when the Sort Text dialogue window opens, it should already be set for sorting paragraphs in ascending order.
Should you need to make any changes to that setting, go ahead and do so and then click OK.
Voila. Text in Word documents sorted in an instant!
