M$ Excel help please! sorting columns :(


#1

let’s say i have this data:

B 3
C 1
A 2

two columns, 3 rows

but i want to sort it so that i have this instead

A 2
B 3
C 1

i have a list of around 400 products and their corresponding prices, but they’re not sorted and it’s pretty useless this way. (can’t LOOKUP without sorting.) :frowning:


#2

try right clicking a cell (not column) and there should be a sort option

works for me with excel 2007, hope it works for you


#3

sorry, i forgot to mention that i’m on Excel 2003. and there’s no right click sort option.

there’s a Sort icon on my toolbars though, but when i select both columns and use that sort, i get this:

C 1
A 2
B 3

which is not what i want. :frowning:

…asdfasdfasdf.
so i tried it again and it did work. apparently, all i had to do was start highlighting from the column that i wanted to base the sort on (in this case, the topmost value on the left column). i’m an idiot. haha :smiley:
