I have a table in a word document which has 4 columns. Its purpose is to have a list of individuals names sorted in alphabetical order. The surname is in column 1 followed by forename in column 2. Columns 3 and 4 are intended to be a continuation of columns 1 and 2, however, try as I might, I cannot get the whole table to sort alphabetically. Your help please.
Hi Bremner! I need to sort the forenames in column 2 with their surnames in column 1 so surely I need to highlight both columns to do this? Then there are further surnames in column 3 to sort with their forenames in column 4. Now, I can sort columns 1 and 2 perfectly but as soon as I try the same thing with columns 3 and 4 columns 1 and 2 loose their alphabetic order and 3 and 4 sort alphabetically.
