Microsoft Word 2003 Miscellaneous – Sorting Text

Microsoft Word 2003 can sort text, such as a list of peoples’ names, class names, names of inventory items, etc. However, the option is somewhat hidden under the “Sort” menu.

To sort text, such as a list of names:

1. Highlight the list of names with your mouse.

2. Choose “Table” then “Sort”.

3. The “Sort Text” dialog box should appear. Most likely you will not have to make any changes. However, if you desire, click the “Descending” radio button to sort the text in descending order.

4. Click “OK” to close the dialog box.
