Sort paragraphs in Word in ascending or descending order

by on
in Office Technology,Word Tips

You can sort a selection of paragraphs in ascending or descending order with a click, whether your data is in a table format or not.

For example, let’s say you typed New Jersey, California, Arkan­­sas and Nevada each on its own line. You would now like to sort them alpha­­betically. Select the text you want sorted. On the Home tab, Para­­graph group, click the button with AZ and a down arrow. Allow all defaults, and click OK. Now it should show Arkan­­sas, California, Nevada and New Jersey. It will move any other text that was in that paragraph, too.
