Sort Row Information In A Spreadsheet


Q. I know I can sort column information in Excel—by text, numbers and date. But sometimes I need to sort information that’s displayed in a row—not a column. Can I do that without transposing the data?

A. Yes, you can. It takes just one extra click to access a change in the orientation. When sorting a row, begin as you would for a column by selecting the range of cells you want to sort. Make sure you select the column headers in the range. Then click on Data, Sort, which brings up the Sort dialog box. Click on the Options button on the bottom.

Then choose the Sort left to right button and click on OK .

It’s as easy as that.
