Reversing order in Notepad possible? 13:15 01 Apr 2006

I don't use office applications that often, and I doubt if this is possible, but If I don't ask I won't find out.

The problem is that I have a list, a VERY long list, consisting of a year date, and a name (this sort of format - "1921 Bill Bloggs"). The list I have is in Notepad text.

Is there any way I can reverse the order from ascending to descending, without hours of typing or copying and pasting?

I doubt if it can be done, but I'm desperate.

Cheers, Whiz...

I don't think that you can do this in Notepad but you can in Word. Select all of your list and select Table|Sort from the menu. The list does NOT have to be in a table to do this. 13:22 01 Apr 2006

Thanks VoG, I'll give it a try. I was under the impression it had to be in a table already.

Learn something every day! Thanks for your fast response.
